KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City, Missouri, city hall and other city facilities will be closed to the public during the stay-at-home order, which begins on Tuesday.

Facilities will be closed through at least April 24 in a decision that was made “days after city hall underwent a deep cleaning to help limit the potential spread of the coronavirus,” according to a statement from the city.

“City employees who have been notified to report to work by their department director will still have access to these buildings,” the statement said. “All others will have work from home assignments.”

Employees will continue to receive pay and benefits, and “leave balances” will not be affected “as long as city associates fully comply with the guidelines for COVID-19 leave usage recently distributed by Human Resources.”

The public can still conduct business through the city’s website.
