Some staff at Fiserv Forum are being furloughed amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Milwaukee Bucks said that a combination of furloughs, temporary pay reductions and position eliminations were underway.

"We have had to make very difficult and painful decisions due to the continuing global pandemic," said Bucks Chief Communications Officer Barry Baum. "With no games or shows at Fiserv Forum since mid-March, and with uncertain times ahead, it was necessary for our business."

The Bucks will not resume their season at Fiserv Forum but in Orlando, Florida on July 31.
