Nike is closing all of its stores in the U.S., along with other parts of the world, to try to curb the spread of the new coronavirus, the company said Sunday morning.
Its locations across the U.S., Canada, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand will close from Monday through March 27, the company said. However, Nike-owned stores in South Korea, Japan, most of China and in many other countries are currently open and will continue their normal operations.
"We are taking additional steps in other Nike-managed facilities, including the option to work from home," it added.
Earlier this month Nike had temporarily closed its European headquarters in Netherlands after an employee was infected with the coronavirus.
