CNBC reported Tuesday that some warehouses in Florida have been temporarily shut down by Amazon.

CNBC reported that the company temporarily closed warehouse sites on the Gulf Coast and in central Florida. The news outlet says that the warehouses will be closed until Friday.

Richard Rocha, an Amazon spokesman, told CNBC that they were making adjustments to their operations in order to keep their employees and delivery people safe. We are in constant contact with our employees and delivery partners to make sure they are aware of any site closings or unsafe conditions.

CNBC didn't say how many warehouses are closed or how many workers are affected.

Amazon did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment, sent outside regular business hours, about whether workers in the temporarily closed warehouses would still be paid.
