NEW YORK – Apple is temporarily closing stores in the city due to the increase in COVID-19 cases.
The closures include outlets on Fifth Avenue, Grand Central and SoHo.
The stores still allow city residents to place orders online and pick them up in person.
Apple says it will continue to regularly monitor and adjust its health metrics going forward.
Meanwhile, investment bank Goldman Sachs will be implementing new vaccination and testing requirements in the new year.
As of February 1, anyone entering the bank’s offices must now show proof of a COVID-19 recall.
This goes for employees and visitors.
In the meantime, anyone entering its offices will also have to undergo tests twice a week.
