All the Beauty Brands That Have Temporarily Closed Due to the Coronavirus So Far
As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread around the world, many US brands are beginning to take action in order to keep customers and employees safe. In the beauty industry in particular, a handful of companies have sent out emails and messages to customers updating them on the changes that they've made to their in-store hygiene policies to reduce the risk of spread. Others, particularly those in areas where the outbreaks either are or have the potential to be slightly more severe, have made the difficult decision to close their stores indefinitely due to the CDC's warnings to avoid areas or events with crowds of more than 50 people.
Here in Australia, we're yet to hear word of brands like Mecca and Sephora closing their doors, however they have paused all professional in-store services and upped their hygiene offerings and standards across all stores. We will keep you update should more changes be implemented.
