May 11 (UPI) -- Apple is reopening a small group of stores in several states this week, beginning Monday.
The company said locations in Alabama, Alaska, Idaho and South Carolina are part of Apple's initial openings, but most of the 271 U.S. locations will remain closed.
Apple said it will monitor health data and "government guidance" for the reopenings, which begin with a store in Boise, Idaho, on Monday.
The stores, however, will only operate at limited capacity and maintain distancing measures.
Walk-in business will be allowed at the stores and customers can pick up items they buy online. Genius Bar appointments will also be available.
Apple has already reopened some stores in Australia, Germany and South Korea.
