As Nevada moves into Phase Two of our Roadmap to Recovery, the widespread use of face coverings will have a significant impact on health outcomes and the safe opening of our economy.
Attached is a letter from the Nevada COVID-19 Task Force to all of us. They need our support and help to responsibly distribute the FREE Stay Safe, Stay Open face coverings to the small business community.
This group of dedicated business resource partners, namely our small business roundtable group, is very supportive of the distribution of face coverings among small, micro and minority businesses in Nevada. We have been assigned 4,000 face coverings for distribution in southern Nevada and 2,000 in northern Nevada.
Our goal now is to get them out as fast as we can by spreading the word within the small businesses we assist and work with.
The distribution points for pick up so far are:
In northern Nevada the Nevada SBDC in Reno is making arrangements to pick up the masks tomorrow and the distribution point will be announced soon. Please feel free to contact Winnie Dowling with Nevada SBDC at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send an update as soon as we confirm a distribution point(s) for pick up.
Please see the attached Nevada COVID-19 Task Force letter as well as an organization sign out sheet from United Way. We are requested to report back to the Task Force. Please complete the organization sign out sheet and return it to Christian.Villagomez@uwnns.org at United Way with a copy to Carrie Foley at email@example.com with the Department of Business & Industry by Friday, June 19th.
For other direct distribution, use the form provided by United Way to track every small business your organization distributes to. You can also take pictures and encourage businesses to post on social media using #StaySafeStayOpen
Many, many thanks for your support in promoting and helping distribute these FREE Stay Safe, Stay Open face coverings!
