PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Rivers Casino has laid off more than 60 workers.

In a statement on Friday, the casino said it had to eliminate 64 positions on Thursday due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We appreciate and value their contributions. We’re providing assistance to help them transition to their next opportunity,” the casino said in a statement.
