Sorry ice cream lovers…

Dairy Queen is canceling its annual Free Cone Day because of coronavirus.

DQ traditionally gives out free small vanilla soft-serve cones every year, usually on March 20, to mark the first day of spring.

DQ released a statement saying the special day usually attracts long lines and they just won’t risk it with COVID-19 still going on.

IHOP also recently announced the cancellation of its National Pancake Day to keep its restaurants from overcrowding.
