But one man who planned on proposing to his girlfriend on a trip to Iceland, decided to take matters into his own hands when the romantic getaway was called off.
Robert Ormsby, 58, was adamant that coronavirus wouldn't stop his engagement, and hatched up a plan to ask his girlfriend in the next best way.
He decided to pop the question to partner Patsy Murdoch, 58, in the local Iceland supermarket, instead. In between the aisles of frozen food in Tonbridge, Kent, Robert got down on one knee and asked Patsy to be his wife.
A photo of the couple - who posed at the checkout in front of a stack of shopping baskets - has since gone viral online and Iceland has even announced a special treat for the pair.
On social media, the supermarket giant revealed it would be paying for the couple's honeymoon to - you guessed it - Iceland.
On a Facebook post, Iceland wrote: "During this uncertain time, we wanted to share some happy news with you!
"Congratulations to this lovely couple who got engaged in our Tonbridge store this week.
"He had planned to propose in Iceland but after their holiday was cancelled, he chose the next best thing...
"Enjoy your honeymoon to Iceland on us."
Social media users were *so* happy for the couple, with many praising Robert's plan.
One wrote: "That is brilliant. Smart move my man, and also a bit of humour thrown in when the nation needs it most."
While another said: "Love this...what a great sense of humour in the face of such uncertain times. Congrats to the happy couple."
This is certainly the happy news we need RN, congratulations to Robert and Patsy who have proved that love cannot be cancelled.
