Around 28,000 workers will be laid off by Disney at its parks in California and Florida due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The layoffs will hit the company's Parks, Experiences and Products, the company said, according to a CNN story.

Earlier this month, Walt Disney Co. officials indicated the company was ready to reopen Disneyland in Anaheim, CA if the state would allow it.

Disneyland has been closed since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
