People across the United States are reporting trouble accessing Amazon.com.

According to Downdetector, a website that monitors website outages, people first started reporting that they were having trouble accessing the website at around 3 p.m. EST. The outage seems to be effecting both desktop and mobile users.

The Amazon outage comes as many are stuck at home and using the online retail website to order and deliver items during the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic has already reportedly forced the company to push back its annual Amazon Prime Day until at least August due to the unprecedented demand for deliveries and online shopping services after the coronavirus pandemic.

TEGNA has contacted Amazon about the outage, but have not received a response.
