Apple Inc. is closing an additional 14 U.S. retail stores Friday because of recent increases in Covid-19 cases, bringing the number shut after recently reopening to 32.

The closings will affect stores across Florida, Apple said Thursday in a statement. The decision means that 16 of Apple’s 18 stores in the state have been closed again, with just those in Jacksonville and Sarasota still open.
