The bakery and cafe chain this week announced a selection of its branches, including in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida and other states, will be temporarily closed amid the ongoing outbreak.

"With COVID-19's far reaching and evolving impact, to protect our communities, teams and customers, we have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close select Au Bon Pain cafes," the company said in a statement Tuesday.
