(CBS NEWS) – A brand that has been in the public eye amid the coronavirus pandemic due to its name announced this week that it is temporarily halting operations.
The production of Corona beer is now suspended as it is considered a “non-essential business.”
Grupo Modelo, the company that produces Corona beer, announced on Twitter Thursday it will stop brewing its beverages starting Sunday after the Mexican government declared breweries non-essential businesses.
The brewer, owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, said it is already in the process of decreasing production.
On Tuesday, the Mexican government declared a health emergency, ordering the suspension of all non-essential activities until April 30 to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus.
