WATERLOO, N.Y. (WHEC) — Furloughs and layoffs at del Lago Resort and Casino now cover more than 1,000 positions.

According to a WARN notice filed with the state, 1,077 employees will be affected.

The casino has been shut down since mid-March because of the outbreak.

Casino officials planned to send WARN notices to the workers already on furlough.

Earlier this month, Vice President and General Manager Lance Young said he's been frustrated with the lack of communication from state officials. He said the casino will continue its efforts to eventually reopen, but the WARN notice states “separations began on April 9 and layoffs are expected to last for an as yet undetermined period.”
