Starbucks will limit availability of seats in stores and would temporarily close some during covid-19

The Starbucks chain informed its customers in North America that they might notice limiting seating at some locations to improve “social distancing” and thus avoid infections of the new covid-19 coronavirus.

In a letter from CEO Kevin Johnson, the boss says some stores could enable mobile order-only scenarios for pickup via the Starbucks app or delivery via Uber Eats. Some locations could be reduced to drive-thru ordering only. Others could close entirely as a last resort. “The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus,” Johnson said in the letter.

In Costa Rica, Starbucks operates 14 stores, however, Johnson’s letter specifically targets its North American operations.
