After closing all stores outside of China in mid-March, Apple is looking to reopen its GTA locations next week.

According to a written letter from the company, approximately 100 stores around the world have been able to reopen to customers since May.

An Apple spokesperson told Daily Hive that GTA stores will be reopening on Monday, June 29, at which point all of their stores will be open in Canada.

The reopenings will be accompanied by additional health and safety measures. All stores are being reopened with reduced occupancy and what Apple describes as a renewed focus on one-on-one service.

Additionally, face coverings are required for all employees and customers, and they will be provided to customers who don’t have their own.

Temperature checks are also being conducted prior to entry along with health questions to screen for symptoms. The cleaning of high-touch areas will also take place throughout the day.

Customers are reminded to be patient, as social physical protocols and reduced in-store capacity may lead to a delay for walk-in customers.
