[Update: More than half of stores worldwide now open] COVID-19: Which Apple Stores have reopened? – 9to5Mac


On March 13, Apple closed all of its retail stores outside of Greater China in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. As many regions around the world ease shelter-in-place orders, Apple is reopening its stores with additional safety procedures and a new social distancing protocol. In the US, each state has a slightly different timeline for reopening businesses, which may leave you wondering: is my Apple Store open?

Update: Apple temporarily closed the majority of its US retail stores on May 31 in wake of widespread protests and looting across the country. Some locations with sustained damage may be closed for an extended period.

Apple monitors local health data and government guidance to determine when individual store locations can safely reopen, and has detailed its comprehensive safety measures in an open letter to customers. Health and safety procedures will vary slightly from store to store based on local policies. In regions where Apple Stores have reopened, the company is focusing on service and support at the Genius Bar. Apple encourages customers to continue shopping online with the Apple Store app, as many locations are open for curbside of storefront service only.

Select Apple Stores in the US began reopening on May 11. Reopening date announcements will continue across the world throughout May and into June. If you’re staying safe at home, Apple has prepared Today at Apple at Home sessions hosted by Apple Store Creative Pros to boost your creativity. New sessions are added regularly.

We’ll update this article as new information is made official, so check back often.
