From restaurants to parks to malls – everything is now shut due to the novel coronavirus and the masses across the globe are quarantined.

Furthermore, major retailers across the U.S., including Macy’s, Apple and Nike, are shutting down their stores or reducing hours in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The decisions, while smart for customers, workers and the community at large, will no doubt weigh heavily on the already-stressed industry.

Here’s the list of retailers who have shut down:

Right now we're facing a situation that no one could really prepare for. In these times of uncertainty we’re following the advice from government and local authorities. We're adapting to ever-changing situations, and are truly grateful to have fantastic teams collaborating to support our customers, colleagues and partners all around the world. In response to the prevention and control of the disease outbreak, we have already, or will shortly, close many of our stores. In stores that remain open or are re-opened, we’re prepared to respond quickly to any emerging situation. We’d also like to share the good news that the non-profit @hmfoundation has donated 500,000 USD to the World Health Organization to help prevent the spread of this pandemic. Please stay safe and take care of one another, wherever you are. H&M
