UMass Amherst to furlough more than 800 workers; blames losses due to Covid-19

The University of Massachusetts announced the furloughs today, citing a $169-million hole in its current budget. Among the losses: $67.4 million in anticipated housing and dining revenue caused by the school’s decision to hold classes remotely this semester and a $30.6-million loss in tuition revenue.

Furlough status means the workers are still eligible for benefits, including health insurance.
