Apple late last week published details on how it is responding to the ongoing coronavirus outbreaks that have popped up around the world. In a statement on Friday, the company said that its donations to help support the global response to the virus have reached $15 million globally. As well, the company detailed plans to close
all some of its retail stores outside of the Greater China region until later this month in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.
In a separate announcement released today, Chris Dodd, iStore South Africa’s CEO said that all of its stores will remain open as they are implementing the necessary additional precautions around hygiene and large groups of people.
The online store will also remain open offering free delivery for all purchases for the time being and the convenience of online cellular upgrades. Apple says that its Support website will also still be available for existing customers.
Apple has been performing ‘extensive, deep cleaning’ at its offices, something that won’t be changing. As well, Apple says that it is monitoring for potentially sick employees.
In addition, Apple News is now offering a new COVID-19 section that aggregates news specifically about the disease and outbreaks.
Core Group is the Official Apple Premium Reseller in South Africa and Africa.
