Community in the time of

COVID-19

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has introduced new challenges and concerns for people everywhere—and this is especially so in Nevada, where so much of our local culture and economy relies on communal experiences.

While we #StaySafeStayOpen and do our part to flatten the curve and improve public health projections by complying with temporary business closure and shelter-in-place orders in accordance with widespread scientific consensus, I understand that we’ll need comprehensive planning, frequent, clear communication, and community-minded policy action to see us through this unprecedented disruption to life as we know it.

I want to thank each of you for doing your part to help shepherd Nevada through this crisis. I understand that you have likely had to make a lot of sacrifices in order to ensure our collective well-being, and am committed to ensuring that your efforts are met with a happy resolution.

I have faith that we’ll get through this together.

We’re Nevadans, after all. We’re Battle Born.

Nevada’s Current Phase

Community Resources

As we face unprecedented challenges, organizations and people from around the state are coming together in the spirit of community to ensure that Nevadans get access to the resources they need.

Find links to a number of resources, including information from state and federal offices, mutual aid groups, non-profit organizations, and directories to help keep you informed as circumstances evolve.

How You Can Help – Share Your Thoughts

COVID-19 and its resultant fallout have heavily impacted communities throughout the State of Nevada, and each of us is still learning the extent of that impact each day.

I understand that each of us has been affected by COVID-19 and the changes it’s precipitated very differently—and that our needs in this time may vary. For that reason, and because I’d like to help, I’d like to invite you to participate in my COVID-19 impact survey so I can gather insights and recommendations from constituents, community organizations, and industries toward developing policy actions that will help us to build a smart, effective pathway to recovery in the days ahead.

On a personal note…

As a teacher moving my classes online, as a business owner projecting revenue loss from cancelled contracts, as a mom with my daughters now home and switching to online learning, as a daughter of elderly parents who are vulnerable and as a representative of Assembly District 25, I care deeply about how many people
COVID-19 is impacting and what the ripple effect will be on our work, families, daily lives, economy, services and vulnerable communities.

We all play a part in limiting the spread, helping those who need it most and finding solutions. Let’s be thoughtful with guidelines, policies, plans and each other as we work through this together to get back up as quickly as possible. We can do this.

It is a tremendous honor and responsibility to represent the 64,000 men, women and children in Assembly District 25. It remains a great privilege to serve in the legislature and I am grateful for your input and support.

In Service,

Jill Tolles
Assembly District 25
