In a previous statement, Apple said it was closing stores again due to current COVID-19 conditions.

"We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible," Apple said in its statement.

In May, when Apple started reopening stores that were closed since March, the company warned "a store opening in no way means that we won't take the preventative step of closing it again should local conditions warrant."

Apple was one of the first retailers to close all of its U.S. stores in mid-March and is requiring shoppers to wear face coverings. it's also doing temperature checks and limiting capacity.
