NFL order Chiefs, rest of teams to close facilities by Wednesday

If anyone needs to get anything or conduct any business out of Arrowhead Stadium, or any other facility owned and operated by the Kansas City Chiefs, the National Football League has given them until Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. That’s the latest directive from commissioner Roger Goodell and the league’s offices.

The NFL has been fortunate among America’s major sports in its ability to conduct business as somewhat usual in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. While other sports have had to shut down actual game play—from the opening day of the Major League Baseball season to March Madness for college basketball to the end of the NBA regular season—the NFL has been able to continue its offseason calendar to the delight of fans looking for a distraction from the news.
