From us here at our station and the other stations in the Reno Media Group family, we recognize this is a trying time for our community and we want to be a resource for our amazing Reno community. We are so grateful to be apart of the Reno community and want to do everything we can to remain #NevadaStrong and more importantly, staying #RenoStrong.
Information is key to protecting you, your family and our community. In addition to twice-daily “Coronavirus–Facts, Not Fear” updates on-the-air from our news partner KTVN 2- News, we’ve compiled this information page for Northern Nevadans outlining the latest news, resources available to workers displaced by mandatory closures, and more.
Together, we will all navigate through the uncertainty and emerge stronger when this crisis has passed. Stay Safe!
Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by “doing the five” in the graphic on the right.
