“Team members should work remotely if their job allows, and those whose work requires them to be on-site should follow guidance to maximize interpersonal space. In all our offices, we are rolling out new health screenings and temperature checks,” said Tim Cook in his statement.

“the most effective way to minimize the risk of the virus’s transmission is to reduce density and maximize social distance.”

Tim Cook in the statement also added that since the infection rates in China have dramatically declined, all Apple stores in China have reopened. “I want to express my deep gratitude to our team in China for their determination and spirit… I also want to thank our operations team and partners for their remarkable efforts to restore our supply chain.”
