The impact of COVID-19 is continuing to unfold across our region, state, nation and the world. These unprecedented times are challenging for everyone.
While Port Canaveral is open and operating, the current pandemic situation has had significant impact on our businesses. In an effort to mitigate the economic challenges facing our Port, we made the difficult decision to temporarily furlough employees dedicated to the Port’s cruise operations and recreation business segments whose job functions are not required for current operations of the Port.
This temporary furlough is effective April 3, 2020 and is expected to last until May 30, 2020 and pending the resumption of cruise lines operations at Port Canaveral. All impacted employees have been notified and will remain Canaveral Port Authority employees through the duration of the furlough period.
