Apple is taking further steps in its physical stores around the world. So far, the company has taken varying levels of caution for customers and workers in the brand’s stores. The countries involved so far are China, Italy, USA and Canada. So far, Apple has not taken any action in Spain.
In the last few days, Apple has taken several measures in its stores in some countries. Related to the outbreak of COVID-19 , Cupertino wants to put certain limits to avoid contributing to its expansion. Specifically, these are the following:
- Total and indefinite closure of the 17 Apple stores in Italy, according to The Verge. A measure that comes just days after the partial closure.
- Suspension of all Today at Apple sessions in the US and Canada, according to MacRumors.
- Stop encouraging customers to try on the Apple Watch and AirPods, according to Business Insider Although it is not specified whether this is a global or a localised measure.
At the moment, it is not known what other measures have been taken in other affected countries. In the case of Spain, the stores remain open and the Today at Apple sessions are still planned as usual. Sessions can be booked now for the Apple Store at Sol throughout today and in any other of the coming weeks.
We have contacted the company to find out if there are any plans to cancel or suspend these activities and even close stores in the affected areas. We will update the information as soon as Apple communicates any action.

Where action is being taken, but in the opposite direction, is in China. All 42 stores were closed over a month ago to combat the spread of the disease. From today, will be operational again all of them, according to Reuters.
