Both of my regular bicycles shoppes have closed, one until 30th of March and the other unknown length of time. This forced me to find another shoppe to do my spring tune up but the silver lining is I found another bike store that does quality work on time and might frequent it for some other things... xD

Bike shops in my city are open but all have reduced their hours or days, just like most other businesses have reduced their hours. I am well stocked up on parts and components so even if they close it wouldn't effect me.

Mine was open with limited access and basically you couldn't touch anything. Now closed to everything, but repairs which you leave off or they will pick them up. Duration unknown.

Viruses don't "live" very long outside the body. Let the bike sit for a day or 2 before working on it.
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.
