Starbucks made an announcement that it's closing 16 locations nationwide out of safety concerns, including the iconic California location on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Some Starbucks will also revoke the company's open restroom policy and provide guidance to baristas on how to deal with an active shooter.
