H&M Group, who own the stores H&M, Monki, Cos, Weekday and & Stories, confirm that they are now closing their fitting rooms.
The decision has been made as a direct effect of the rising numbers of coronavirus cases in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
"The safety of our customers and colleagues is always H&M Group's most important priority. We follow the authorities' guidelines and the precautionary principle to minimize the spread of COVID-19, which is why we have chosen to temporarily close all our fitting rooms," says a statement from H&M Group.

"In the meantime, we remind our customers that they are always welcome to buy the goods and try them at home - as always, they can take advantage of our right of exchange and return if they regret their purchase."
The Danish DR News reports that they have tried in vain to get a comment from giant clothes company Bestseller to hear if they are planning to follow H&M Group's example.
Stand Together by Staying Away
It was yesterday that Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen presented a large number of comprehensive initiatives aimed at curbing the aggressive development of the coronavirus.
The virus has, so far, not cost human life in Denmark, but yesterday the first death in Sweden and Norway was reported.
The latest update from Denmark states that 674 people have been infected.
The number of infected people in the Faroe Islands is currently two.
We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
