Many around the country are taking precautions to help keep the coronavirus from spreading, and that means not leaving the house unless you really need to. That's why many businesses have decided to either transition to work from home setups or close temporarily, and Cartoon Network, home of shows like Steven Universe, Thundercats Roar, and more, revealed today that they are going with the latter for their Cartoon Network hotel. The hotel released a statement regarding their decision, which came after undergoing an enhanced cleaning, sanitation, and disinfection protocol for the hotel. Despite that, they still decided to go ahead and close their doors temporarily, and you can read their full statement on why below.
