Loews delays opening date amid coronavirus concerns
"In the coming weeks we will release a new date for the opening of Kansas City's newest hotel, a hotel that we look forward to opening and celebrating with the entire destination of Kansas City," the statement said. "At the core of our company, is being a good neighbor in good times and in tough times. We will be spending these next weeks' doing just that, as we immerse ourselves in the community, lending hands and support wherever and whenever is needed."
New York-based Loews Corp. did not say what would be happening to the hundreds of employees it had hired in recent months, or when the opening would take place.
The delayed opening is the most recent domino to fall after Mayor Quinton Lucas declared a state of emergency in response to the virus and started limiting gatherings of more than 10 people. The order effectively shut down the city's conference business as well bars and restaurants.
