The coronavirus outbreak is affecting an annual tradition at Ben & Jerry's.

The ice cream chain says they are postponing "Free Cone Day" for now. The event usually happens a few weeks from now each year.


The company says some of their shops around the world can't take part, due to restrictions from local governments.

They say the shops remain open. They hope they can reschedule "Free Cone Day" later in the year.
