The chain had furloughed some employees in an attempt to try to stay afloat, but let them go earlier this week when they closed all of their locations.

Popular restaurant chain Logan's Roadhouse is closed during the coronavirus and may not reopen, according to published reports.

The sales tax revenues were reportedly paid to states without the approval of court-appointed overseers, according to Restaurant Business Online.

The parent company said it is also temporarily closing all 261 of its restaurants.

"The status of all team members will be revised from furloughed to terminated", a CraftWorks Holdings internal document obtained by the Wall Street Journal read.

Tedros had earlier told BBC that "It was a disgrace, appalling, to hear during the 21st Century, from scientists, that kind of remark".

The owners hope to reopen their locations, but say these could be long closures if not permanent ones.

The terminations impact almost 18,000 employees.

Now almost 18,000 employees have been laid off and their health insurance coverage has been terminated, without access to short-term COBRA coverage during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to bankruptcy court filings. CraftWorks Holdings did add that there's a possibility of opening its restaurants at a later date.

Craftworks said in the filing, "The shutdown could persist for a prolonged period time, if not permanently".
