Apple closed retail stores across the world until further notice, except in Greater China, in efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The company might start re-opening some of its retail stores in the first half of April, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing an internal memo.

It was not clear which stores would open again, or in which countries. Many governments around the world have currently initiated lockdowns to limit the spread of the coronavirus, though others, where the virus struck earlier, have begun to ease restrictions.

Apple reopened its stores in China earlier this month.
