Apple is making another push for retail employees to work from home after it began re-closing certain stores in the United States in areas where COVID-19 cases have spiked, according to Bloomberg.
Deirdre O'Brien, Apple's senior vice president of retail and people, encouraged store staff to work remotely in a new video message, saying that employees "may need to be working remotely for some period of time," according to the report.
Apple recently re-closed stores in states such as Oklahoma, California, Georgia, Idaho, Texas, and Florida among others because of increases in reported coronavirus cases in those areas.
"Due to current COVID-19 conditions in some of the communities we serve, we are temporarily closing stores in these areas," Apple said in a previous statement regarding store closures. "We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and we look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible."
O'Brien also emphasized the importance of reducing wait times as more people shop online because of the pandemic, according to the report.
