Apple is requesting that anyone who has visited China in February ensures that they have completed a 14-day quarantine before they attend the shareholder meeting. The company says that it comes after taking "official guidance on COVID-19 from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and working in close consultation with public health experts".
Apple knows as well as anyone the impact coronavirus can have. It closed its Chinese Apple Stores over coronavirus concerns, with part supplier Foxconn still trying to recover following the closure of its facilities in the region. Only now is Apple returning to something close to business as usual in China.
