Corona beer production has been shuttered because of the coronavirus.

In a statement, Grupo Modelo, the brewer behind Corona, Modelo and other beers, is being temporarily suspended in Mexico to comply with a government order to close non-essential businesses to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Mexico has more than 1,500 cases and 50 deaths.

The brewer, part of Anheuser-Busch InBev, said that should the federal government decide later its product was essential, “at Grupo Modelo we are ready to execute a plan with more than 75 percent of our staff working from home and at the same time guaranteeing the supply of beer.”

It’s the second slap at the brewer in a little over a month.

In a survey, 38% of American beer drinkers said they would not buy Corona beer “under any circumstances,” CBS News reported March 1.

CNN reported, however, Constellation Brands, which handles Grupo Modelo’s beer in the United States, said that the virus had not affected sales.
