Apple has temporarily closed its stores in downtown Palo Alto, the Stanford Shopping Center and all other locations in California amid the Covid pandemic.

According to the Apple website, the 53 stores statewide are temporarily closed.
Customers with pre-scheduled appointments for in-store pickups, Genius Bar appointments and previously reserved one-on-one shopping sessions with a specialist will be able to visit stores through Tuesday.

All online services are available and most Apple products are available at Apple-authorized retailers, such as Best Buy, Costco and Target.

Apple did not immediately return emails seeking comment Saturday. — Bay City News
