Apple Stores To Require Temperature Check To Enter

The Washington Post reports:

Apple’s retail stores are known for crowded areas of display devices ready for experimenting and the ability to make a purchase without needing to line up at a cash register.

But as the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant reopens about 100 of its retail stores globally, the customer experience is bound to feel different. Apple will be enforcing strict social distancing guidelines in its stores, Apple retail and human resources chief Deirdre O’Brien wrote in a public letter this weekend.

The company will cap the number of people allowed in to keep at least six feet between everyone, will require masks and will check customers’ temperatures before they enter. Some stores will only do curbside pickup.

About 30 US stores will open this week.
