Apple has closed its major New York City retail stores — including its Fifth Avenue, SoHo, Grand Central and World Trade Center locations — to shoppers because of rising Covid-19 cases.

The closures include 16 stores across New York, with Upper West Side, West 14th Street, Staten Island and Bronx locations all affected. The temporary move also includes stores in Huntington Station and Manhasset.

Apple has temporarily closed many stores in recent weeks as it copes with the highly contagious omicron variant, but it is trying a different approach with the New York shutdown. The company is still letting customers place orders online and pick them up at the stores. Shoppers will not be able to enter the store to browse or purchase anything onsite, and technical support from the Genius Bar will not be available.
