Apple is checking its customers’ temperatures before they enter its stores in Beijing after reopening some stores amid the coronavirus outbreak in China.

In a video posted to Twitter by CNBC reporter Eunice Yoon, customers are seen getting their temperatures checked as soon as they walk in the door. Apple reopened five stores in Beijing on Friday, but is limiting hours, Yoon said.

Apple confirmed to Business Insider that it is conducting temperature checks at its stores in Beijing, and pointed to a notice posted on its Chinese retail website advising customers to wear masks and prepare for temperature checks before entering the store

Earlier this month, Apple shut down all of its stores and corporate offices in China because of the coronavirus. The death toll of the virus has reached 1,384, with more than 64,000 people infected.
