Dairy Queen has postponed Free Cone Day over coronavirus concerns.
Free Cone Day was scheduled to take place March 19.
Dairy Queen released a statement saying:
In light of the growing concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), and the precautions established by the World Health Organization and government agencies around large public gatherings, we made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Free Cone Day, which was scheduled for Thursday, March 19 in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The health and wellbeing of our fans and crew members is our top priority, and we look forward to rescheduling at a later date when we know more.
