People walking before Apple Store West Lake -Apple's stores in China to remain closed due to coronavirus

Apple has extended the closures of its stores in China until the end of next week due to coronavirus concerns, as reported earlier Friday by Bloomberg. While the tech giant planned to reopen its stores on Feb. 10, Apple said Friday the stores will remain closed "until further notice." Multiple stores are now listed on the company's website as being closed through at least Feb. 23. These include stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Shandong, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Sichuan, Guangdong, Henan and Tianjin. Apple began closing stores in January following the spread of the deadly coronavirus outside of China to Asia, the US, Australia, Europe, the UK and the Middle East. It originally planned to reopen them at the end of the extended Lunar New Year holiday break on Feb. 10. Of Apple's 42 stores on the Chinese mainland, only three stores are now listed on the company's website as opening next week: one in Chongqing on Feb. 13; one in Fujian on Feb. 11; and one in Guangzhou, which shows it'll still reopen Feb. 10. All six Apple stores in Hong Kong remain open, and Apple is still looking to reopen its corporate offices next week "after thorough consultation with public health experts and government authorities." "The entire Apple family is committed to helping our colleagues, communities, suppliers, partners and customers in China," the company said in an emailed statement. "We will continue to update our customers as opening dates are finalized." "Our thoughts continue to be with those affected by the Coronavirus and those working around the clock to treat, study and contain its spread," Apple added Friday.
