Family Resource Guide to COVID-19
March 18, 2020
Dear Nevada Families:
We know that school closures and the stress of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, affects parents, guardians, and students. This document was created to share tips and resources for Nevada’s families to support working together to keep our communities safe and healthy during this challenging time.
To reiterate the message Governor Steve Sisolak shared with students on Sunday, March 15th, the temporary school closures should not be considered an extended spring break. We need your assistance in sharing this message with children and neighbors – at the instruction of Nevada's health officers, students are being asked to refrain from large gatherings and "carrying on as normal." Though you may have heard that young people are at low risk of suffering from symptoms of COVID-19, children can still be exposed to COVID-19 and pass it on to others. The decisions students and families make while schools are closed will have a direct impact on the health of their parents, grandparents, and neighbors.
