City closes the "Bean" to visitors because of coronavirus concerns

The City of Chicago is closing off one of its most iconic landmarks because of coronavirus.

The "Bean" -- officially known as "Cloud Gate" is being closed off from visitors.

The city said in a Facebook post: "Millennium Park remains open, but Cloud Gate Plaza is closed. All events and programs are cancelled through April 12."

The Bean is a magnet for families and is probably touched by thousands of people on a busy day.
