Starbucks Joins the CoronaPanic

Starbucks Joins the CoronaPanic

Starbucks has announced that it will be temporarily pausing the use of personal cups and "for here" ware such as ceramic mugs, amid the growing coronavirus outbreak.

All drinks will now be served in disposable cups for the time being in the U.S. and Canada, presumably with the goal of further minimizing the risk of transmitting the virus between staff and customers, or vice versa.

Scientists have predicted that the virus could live on surfaces for up to nine days.
