Layoffs coming at Eastern Washington University services
March 26, 2020
CHENEY -- Eastern Washington University officials have indicated there will be some layoffs in response to changes on campus resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The layoffs will take place in the housing and dining services due to a reduced number of students being on campus. The university went to all online instruction earlier this month as a measure to combat the spread of the disease sweeping world, and that instruction will remain online the rest of the 2019-2020 academic school year.
Officials are still assessing the potential financial impacts from the disease. Students are scheduled to begin spring quarter classes -- teleclasses -- on April 6.
This is a developing story.
