Facing the uncertainty of the situation wrought by the global coronavirus pandemic, Walt Disney World (WDW) said on Saturday it has reached an agreement with several of its biggest unions and will furlough 43,000 workers starting April 19.

The furloughs will last until whenever the Orlando park—shuttered on March 15 due to the spread of the virus—reopens for business.
