Can Can Wonderland is shutting down until further notice, it announced on Tuesday.

"The simple truth is many businesses in the service industry do not have the economic resources to shut down and wait this out," Can Can Wonderland said in a Facebook post. "Not knowing the length or severity of the COVID-19 outbreak greatly limits a company’s ability to prepare for an economic downturn such as we are now facing."
