With positive COVID-19 cases in Michigan continuing to rise, Apple has made the decision to close all of their stores in Michigan indefinitely.

MLive reports that Apple revealed the news in an e-mailed statement.

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.

Apple has six locations in the state:

  • Ann Arbor - Briarwood
  • Clinton Township - Partridge Creek
  • Grand Rapids - Woodland Mall
  • Lansing - Eastwood Towne Center
  • Novi - Twelve Oaks
  • Troy - Somerset Collection

All of the stores are indicated as "Temporarily Closed." It's unknown when the stores plan on reopening. Customers who had a pick-up planned can still visit their nearest store to get their purchase.

Michigan is the only state that's affected. It's also the state leading the country in new cases with 77 per 100,000 people per day.
