(CNN) — Starbucks employees will still see a paycheck — even if they don’t work during the coronavirus outbreak.

The coffee chain has closed all of its U.S. locations — with the exception of drive-thru and delivery orders.

Starbucks leaders say they will pay employees for the next 30 days. It’s up to employees if they work or not.

Starbucks closed about 80 percent of its Chinese locations in February. It’s since reopened most of its locations there.
