The company is following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as other medical and governmental authorities. Forty-nine stores, distribution centers and offices have closed.

“We urge all businesses and individuals to follow the best advice of the medical community and be part of the solution,” Boscov said.
