My company just announced we're going to have a one week furlough. It's bad, but not as bad as a layoff. If we miss Q2 (which we will with the current state of affairs), then we will have layoffs starting in July I'm sure.

    In the US, furloughed employees retain full benefits, and are eligible for unemployment, which pays a sliding scale based on your salary up to $74,000 with the recent addition of a $600 benefit for the duration of the corona crisis. The amount can also vary by state.

    What is the situation now? In the case of a layoff, there is an open-source project on Github to help stay connected to the job opportunities: WillBeAllRight - COVID 19 with concrete suggestions and pitfalls to avoid like questions that should be immediately asked after the notification.
