In May 2020, as the pandemic shut down the economy, Gate Hospitality Group notified the state it permanently laid off 141 employees and temporarily furloughed more than 700 at the four Northeast Florida resort and hospitality properties.

Gate Petroleum Co. spokesperson Misty Skipper said May 12 that Gate brought some back.

“In the months that followed, we rehired the majority of individuals who had a desire to return to work at the clubs. Some chose not to return as they had found other employment, moved or did not wish to return to a role we had available at the time,” Skipper said.
