With Disneyland and California Journey still shuttered because of to the coronavirus pandemic, Disney declared Monday that an undisclosed amount of personnel at the Anaheim vacation resort will be furloughed.
Disneyland President Ken Potrock broke the news Monday in a letter to workers, saying the furloughs will affect “government, salaried and hourly cast.”
“As you know, we’ve currently taken the heart-wrenching motion of laying off hundreds of our forged on both coasts,” he wrote in the memo, copies of which ended up obtained by different media shops. “We predicted to be ready to open our parks in Anaheim, specified our confirmed ability to run with responsible health and safety protocols as we have in all of our other topic parks around the globe, but however, this has not been the situation.”
It was unclear how a lot of men and women would be afflicted by the furloughs.
In September, Disney announced the layoffs of 28,000 staff at Disneyland and Disney Globe in Florida owing to the pandemic-mandated park closures.
Disneyland officers had been hoping to reopen soon, adhering to safety protocols it has applied at its other theme parks all around the environment that have commenced welcoming friends again.
The condition, even so, has refused to budge on rigorous reopening guidelines that will hold major theme parks closed until eventually the counties in which they are found access the most lenient amount of California’s 4-tier coronavirus-monitoring roadmap. That restriction suggests the Disneyland Resort is likely to keep on being shut until at minimum early upcoming year, with Orange County struggling to advance in the state’s tier process.
A coalition of Southern California mayors a short while ago sent Gov. Gavin Newsom a letter inquiring him to look at easing the theme park specifications, but there has been no movement from the condition.
