As initially reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, all New York City Apple Stores have been added to the list of locations closing to most customers amid a spike in COVID-19 infections.

Last week, Apple closed seven stores in North America in one day as employee testing rose, and MacRumors points out that even before this announcement, the Apple website listed more than 20 locations that were closed today due to the effects of the pandemic.

For people in New York City, the stores are still open if you have an appointment to pick up an online order. All other services, such as Genius Bar tech support or appointment shopping, are currently listed as unavailable. There’s no word on how long the current situation will last, but Apple is no longer offering the two-hour free delivery option it pushed for last week’s holiday.
