"This is an unprecedented and rapidly changing situation to which we will need to continue to adapt. We want to thank everyone in our organisation, as well as our partners, for their dedication to our business and the support they’re providing to each other as we all rally together during this time."
The company's head offices remain open currently, with the company announcing that the majority of employees are working remotely across the US and Europe.
PVH Corp. will provide an update on the financial impacts of COVID-19 to the business during its fourth-quarter earnings call on 2 April.
