"Unfortunately, we cannot continue to sustain these payments so we have issued furlough notices to affected employees," the company said. "These decisions are never easy ones. The situation we now face is affecting millions in our country, and hitting the service industry especially hard."
Potawatomi announced it was suspending its operations last month. Concerts and events have also been canceled and postponed.
Potawatomi said it expected to call all of their employees back and reopen its business doors when it is safe to do so.
