Apple said on Monday that about 20 of its retail stores were closed due to a spate of Covid-19 cases among employees who had left stores unsafe and understaffed.

A handful of stores in Washington state have also closed due to the storms, the company said.

Some stores had been closed as a precaution to protect employees and customers from infection; others were closed because there were not enough healthy employees available to stay open.

“We regularly monitor conditions and will adjust our health measures to promote the well-being of customers and employees,” Apple spokeswoman Amy Bessette said in a statement, adding that workers were tested regularly.

Apple employees are increasingly frustrated with their work environment, as the Omicron variant has fueled a spate of cases across the country. On Christmas Eve, several dozen Apple employees out of the stores to demand better wages, more sick leave and better working conditions.
