(NewsReady.com) – America is feeling the impact of the coronavirus. Employees and employers are finding ways to adapt to the upheaval. However, the food industry is having a particularly rough time.
If you think you’re eating out or going shopping, expect these types of signs. Waves of retail stores, movie theaters, and businesses close in an effort to decrease crowd sizes. Latest on #coronavirus impact in my report tonight on @EWTNNewsNightly pic.twitter.com/oPAsAkGxl9

Big businesses are also feeling the impact of COVID-19. At least 30 major retailers have temporarily closed their stores. Apple and Nike are closing their stores until at least through March 27.
Some companies, like Walmart, are closing early to clean and stock the stores.
Sadly, workers in some industries are being let go until the virus is contained. For example, travel agencies are cutting workers and a stage-lighting company in Orlando laid off over 100 of its workers.
President Donald Trump and Congress are actively looking for ways to relieve the pressure on businesses and the rest of the economy. Hopefully, an emergency spending bill will pass soon, because Americans desperately need it.
