The apple store highcross store in Leicester, UK, will reopen on Wednesday, bringing all Apple retail stores back to business in the UK since a ban was imposed in March in response to the global health crisis.
on June 29, Leicester became the first British city to be partially blocked after public health officials expressed concern about the alarming rise in the city’s coronavirus infection rate.
at that time, Leicester accounted for 10% of all positive infection results in the country, and the infection rate in 7 days was three times higher than that in the second highest city. Now that’s less than half of what the ban imposed.
after the city’s blockade was gradually relaxed, the nonessential controlled stores in the high cross shopping center in Leicester reopened on Monday. Health and safety measures still exist, and there are clear signs to remind customers of the need for social distance to avoid gathering.
