Nonprofits have bore the brunt of the pandemic's financial impact

The Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) recently notified the state that it has furloughed nearly 400 employees since March due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In a letter to the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS), CAPA said 398 part- and full-time workers have lost their jobs due to government public gathering restriction.

The furloughs started with part-time stagehands, wardrobe, house managers, bartenders, ticket office associates, and other positions on March 17, when the state issued its first limit to gatherings. In total, 363 positions were put on hold then.
