Disney has announced that the company will furlough all employees whose jobs are "not necessary at this time" beginning April 19th.
Employees have been receiving full pay and benefits since the parks in Orlando and California closed last month due to the coronavirus pandemic and Disney says they will continue to be paid through April 18th.
Disney says the pandemic is having a "devastating impact" on the company with "untold suffering and loss."
Furloughed workers will remain Disney employees and get full healthcare benefits.
