More than 80 major US retailers are temporarily closing stores to prevent the spread of the coronavirus

Business Insider:

In an unprecedented move for US retailers, stores across the country are opting to indefinitely shut their doors to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus in the US.

Though companies like Walmart have taken steps to reduce hours, several major retailers are electing to fully cease physical store operations as confirmed coronavirus cases in the country continue to rise.

In most cases, employees are being compensated for the lost shifts, pointing to how the global pandemic has led to seismic shifts in paid sick-leave policies for retail workers on the front lines.

Like Apple, many of the listed companies are going to continue to pay workers.
