Apple has taken a step back in its efforts to reopen its stores around the world, with all six of its retail outlets in the US’ Michigan closed as a preventative measure, via AppleInsider.

The six outlets in the state closed on Friday, confirmed by Apple as a “temporary” measure “due to current COVID-19 conditions” in the state. Store listings for the six confirm they are closed for the foreseeable future, with no indication as to when they will reopen to the public.

“We take this step with an abundance of caution as we closely monitor the situation and look forward to having our teams and customers back as soon as possible,” Apple said in a statement to MLive.

While the stores are immediately closed, they will still be performing any pre-arranged tasks with customers over the following few days. The store pages advise they are currently still open for pickup of existing online orders, previously-scheduled in-store Genius Support appointments, and any already-reserved one-on-one shopping sessions with a specialist, until April 18.

The six stores are in Ann Arbor, Clinton Township, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Novi, and Troy.
