Apple Inc. said its stores outside of China will remain closed “until further notice,” no longer holding to the March 27 re-opening date it announced earlier.

The company made the disclosure on its online homepage after many regions across the world issued “shelter in place” orders that strictly limit people’s movements. For example, the San Francisco Bay Area, which has several Apple stores, won’t let many retailers re-open until April 7 at the earliest.
