"Today at Apple" sessions have been suspended at all Apple Stores in Italy through at least March 19, as noted by setteBIT and iMore, presumably as a precautionary measure due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

Italy has been hit particularly bad by the coronavirus outbreak, with nearly 4,000 infections reported in the country, according to the latest data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The country has temporarily closed schools and banned some large gatherings in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.


Apple Stores remain open for business in Italy for the time being, beyond one location at the Oriocenter shopping mall northeast of Milan that will be closed this weekend due to Italian government orders.

Today at Apple sessions have also been suspended in China and Hong Kong.

Is it just me or we would have little to talk about these days on MacRumors if it wasn't for the coronavirus.
(Perhaps same for news outlets in general.)

What will the Creatives and Creative Pros do while this is in effect? Hopefully they get to study and sharpen their skills instead of getting deployed to the Genius Bar or sales floor.

San Francisco Emergency Management has suggested that nonessential community events be curtailed... but it’s business as usual here.

As testing ramps up in California, and we fully understand the scope of the outbreak; we should have a better idea as to whether or not Apple should have taken similar actions here.
