According to CDC Gaming Reports, the operator cited a letter it sent to employees in early May warning of potential July layoffs.

Boyd said in a statement: “These layoffs are at the lower end of the range outlined in the WARN Act letters issued in May. We are notifying affected team members as expeditiously as we can.

“This was an extremely difficult decision for our company and one we had hoped would not be necessary. To assist impacted team members during this difficult time, we will be providing financial assistance to those who are affected.”

Boyd furloughed a significant portion of its staff earlier during the coronavirus pandemic, although in May, it confirmed the reopening of its properties in Louisiana and Mississippi.
