Hannah just tweeted that they're up to late April for query responses and will be working through them soon. They have left New York for a while and will be working remotely.

Underrepresented writer EQ: 2/7/20
Partial request: 3/3/20 (*hyperventilates*), sent same day. Received follow-up that she'd aim to have a response within 4-6 weeks.
ER: 3/24/20 "While I really enjoyed the fascinating premise and the world you've created, I'm afraid the work as a whole just doesn't feel quite right for my list."

Their site does appear to have formatting issues at the moment. The important information is still on their submissions page if you can find it.

Here it is, in case you are having trouble getting there.

bckinney - Wow, just looked at their website. It did not used to look like that. I googled it and clicked on the submissions link and found the info there. You need to send the first 3 pages of your manuscript with the query letter. But, something is definitely up with their website.

Can... anyone make sense of the KT Literary website? It seems to be a bunch of giant text and blog-post tags. I can't find anything like query guidelines.
