Covid limbo means Disneyland furloughs more workers

COVID limbo means Disneyland furloughs more workers as it is uncertain as to when the Californian state will allow it to reopen.

The Walt Disney Company made the announcement on Monday, November 9, stating that its Disneyland theme park in Southern California would be furloughing additional workers, however, the number of furloughs, which include executive, salaried and hourly workers, was not revealed.

California health authorities in October dashed hopes of the reopening as COVID case and death figures continue to rise and the lastest furlough announcement comes on top of the 28,000 employees being laid off in September, mostly across Disney’s U.S. theme parks, in California and Florida.

Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock told Reuters: “The recently released state guidelines put us in limbo regarding a reopening timeline in the foreseeable future.”

As a result, Disney was “in the untenable situation of having to institute additional furloughs for our executive, salaried and hourly cast,” he said.

The furloughed employees will be able to maintain health insurance, according to Potrock.
