ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Walt Disney Co. is announcing plans to lay off 4,000 more workers in its theme parks division in California and Florida due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on the industry.
The company has been limiting attendance at its parks and changing protocols to allow for social distancing.
Officials haven’t specified the number of workers that would be affected in its Orlando theme parks.
Disney’s parks closed in March as the pandemic started spreading in the U.S.
The Florida parks reopened in the summer, but the California parks have yet to reopen pending state and local government approvals.
