      (CNN) — Production of Corona beer is being temporarily suspended in Mexico because of the coronavirus pandemic.

      Grupo Modelo, the company that makes the beer, posted the announcement on Twitter, stating that it’s halting production and marketing of its beer because the Mexican government has shuttered non-essential businesses. The Anheuser-Busch Inbev-owned company also makes Modelo and Pacifico beers.

      This week, the Mexican government announced the suspension of non-essential activities in the public and private sectors until April 30 in an effort to curb the spread of the virus. The country has more than 1,500 cases and 50 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins.

      Grupo Modelo is ready to enact a plan to “guarantee the supply of beer” if the Mexican government decides to include breweries as essential, according to a statement.

      Constellation Brands handles the distribution and import of Grupo Modelo’s beers in the United States. The company said it will discuss the production cessation on a call Friday morning.

      Corona’s coincidental name with the virus hasn’t dented sales. Constellation said sales of its beer brands grew 8.9% for the first three months of this year, with Modelo and Corona being its top sellers. Corona Hard Seltzer, which launched in early March, is also off to a “strong start,” according to a company earnings release.
