Starbucks could soon limit seating at some stores because of coronavirus.

The company's CEO says he's considering keeping only the drive-thrus open for customers.

The coffee chain says it's also prepared to restrict ordering to its app for pickup or delivery.

Starbucks put many of these measures in place in China, where the outbreak originated.

Starbucks says it may temporarily close stores but only as a last resort.
