Kim Kardashian has been forced to suspend operations at KKW Beauty due to the coronavirus crisis.

A spokesperson for the cosmetics brand took to Facebook on Monday to explain that they would be hitting pause on deliveries for the foreseeable future due to health restrictions currently in place in California.

''To our KKW Beauty Family. Due to current health orders in California, our fulfillment center is temporarily closing," they wrote. "While our website remains available to accept orders, our fulfillment center cannot guarantee delivery dates at this time. Your order will receive top priority as soon as we can resume shipping."

The company representative went on note that any order placed on or after 16 March is eligible for cancellation and a full refund. Customers with queries are advised to get in touch via email.

"While this remains a difficult time for us all, we have been so inspired by all the amazing support we are seeing within our community and would like to thank you for your patience and understanding," they concluded.

One of the U.S. states most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, California has over 2,000 confirmed cases. Earlier this month, Governor Gavin Newsom issued a state-wide order for Californians to stay at home, except those providing essential services.

KKW Beauty was founded by Kim in 2017, the same year her perfume line, KKW Fragrance, was launched.

Although the pause in operations is unprecedented, employees will continue to update fans via email, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, insisting that they are looking forward to the "continued sharing of beauty tips, tricks, and KWW beauty content".
