Soaring COVID cases forces Apple to ban shoppers from all NYC stores

By 12/28/2021 8:36 AMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

Due to the rising number of COVID cases in New York City, Apple has decided to temporarily close all of its Bi Apple stores to in-person shoppers.

Among the Apple stores that are closed are its massive Fifth Avenue flagship — as well as its Grand Central, SoHo, and World Trade Center stores and smaller outlets across the five boroughs.

According to the iPhone maker’s site, only online shoppers can pick their items at the stores.

Sources said only the Apple stores in Westchester County, Long Island, New Jersey, and upstate New York remain open for in-person shopping.

It was learned that last week, Apple shuttered stores in Florida, Georgia, Texas, New Hampshire, and Canada as coronavirus cases rose.

It was also learned that on Monday, New York City reported a near-record of 17,343 new coronavirus cases.

Aside from the rising COVID cases, the city’s hospitalization rate has also more than doubled over the past week as hospitals see a surge of patients infected with the omicron variant.
