Searching for Today at Apple sessions in the SF Bay Area or around Seattle provides results that say there are currently no classes available. Apple has also canceled all Field Trip programs, which allowed teachers to take students to Apple Stores.
Apple sent out notices to stores in these areas asking them to cancel all sessions from March 8 to March 29, according to an Apple retail source that spoke with MacRumors. Apple has also canceled Today at Apple sessions in Italy.
As iMore reported on Friday, Apple was recently forced to cancel all of its Today At Apple sessions throughout Italy until March 19. That cancellation appears to have been extended until at least March 21.

The coronavirus outbreak continues to affect Apple's global operations, in China it was forced to close all of its retail stores for several weeks, four of them are still closed and have been since February 1.
