Apple (AAPL) will reportedly start to reopen its retail stores in some states as the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders ease across the U.S.

Apple closed all of its retail stores indefinitely in March and plans to reopen stores to offer its Genius Bar for service and support, Business Insider reported. The tech giant will also reportedly implement a series of safety measures, such as requiring customers to wear face masks and take temperature checks before entering its stores.

Apple said in a statement to the news outlet, “As local guidance varies around the US there may be slight modifications to our procedures. As always, our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19 and those working around the clock to treat, study and contain its spread.”
