Resources & Steps to Protect Our Communities

As I reflect on the resiliency of Nevadans, I deeply appreciate the immense and drastic efforts undertaken to keep our communities safe as we assess the impacts of the pandemic. There are many local, state, and federal resources available to us as a community and it is important to bring them together in one place so individuals and small businesses impacted by COVID-19 can easily find information identifying the options available to address their needs and concerns.
