PHILADELPHIA (CBS/CNN) — Companies across the country are trying to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus and a popular coffee chain is halting the use of reusable cups. Starbucks announced they are temporarily suspending reusable cups to help prevent the spread.

The company will continue to honor its 10-cent discount for anyone who brings in a personal cup or tumbler for coffee, even though customers can’t use them, said Rossann Williams, Starbucks’ president of company-operated businesses in the United States and Canada.
