Local Businesses Layoff Workers Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Several local businesses and restaurants have laid off workers due to COVID-19 pandemic in recent months.

Businesses filed notices through the Virginia Employment Commission, which requires businesses with more than 100 employees to provide advanced notice of layoffs affecting more than 50 employees or business closings.

In Reston and Herndon, six businesses filed notices, totaling more than 450 layoffs.

Nearly all notices filed with the VEC were attributed to the pandemic. The following is a breakdown of major layoffs since March 1 through today:
