What does this mean for Amazon FBA sellers? 

Amazon FBA sellers will not be able to create shipments to be received at Amazon’s fulfillment centers through Seller Central. Amazon will only accept essential items such as medical supplies and household products until April 6. 
However, if your product is already on its way and/or in Amazon fulfillment center, you can continue to sell it. 

Options you can exercise: 

Amazon is encouraging sellers who typically sell FBA to use their own carriers for shipping products and to sell Fulfilled by Merchant (FBM). 

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with as many updates as possible.
