Apple is temporarily closing all California stores amid the state's COVID-19 surge.

Stores are currently open for pickup of existing online orders, Genius Bar appointments or one-on-one shopping sessions made through Dec. 22, the company's website said.

Apple, which has over 50 stores in the state, had initially started temporarily closing all Los Angeles-area locations on Friday.

California reported 43,608 new COVID-19 cases and 272 deaths on Saturday. Four regions -- San Joaquin Valley, Southern California, Greater Sacramento and the Bay Area -- are under a regional stay-at-home order based on intensive care unit capacity.
