Foxwoods Lays Off Staff, Makes Closures

Foxwoods Resort Casino says it will temporarily lay off 130 employees and close some of its hotels and gaming areas due to the ongoing pandemic. Foxwoods officials say heightened spread of COVID-19 and state restrictions have spurred a “significant” reduction in volume at the casino. The Day reports that the casino hopes to rehire furloughed workers — including support staff members — after New Year's.
