YurView LV Rebroadcasts Important UNLV Discussion on COVID-19

Nevada is just one of the many states that has taken steps to minimize the risk and spread of COVID-19 as cases increase across the state and the country. Schools have moved to remote instruction, non-essential businesses are temporarily closed, and most residents are now at home.

With public health at the forefront in Nevada and worldwide, accurate, scientifically-based information is needed now more than ever.

YurView will rebroadcast COVID-19: A Discussion with Public Health Experts on Wednesday, April 1 at 6:00 pm, Thursday, April 2 at 9:00 pm, Saturday, April 4 at 10:00 am and Sunday, April 5 at 9:30 pm. All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time. It will repeat every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at the same time until the content is no longer relevant.

Viewers can watch it on YurView Las Vegas (Cox channel 14/1014).  The hour-long discussion from the live stream is also available to view anytime on yurview.com.

Experts from UNLV School of Public Health and Southern Nevada Health District share what you need to know about COVID-19 including how to minimize risks, slow transmission, and where we go from here.
