In response to COVID-19, to protect the health of our members and staff, and to do our part to contain it, MRNV has redirected our staff to work remotely for the week of March 16th. During this week our offices are closed to the public. We encourage all our members to practice social distancing whenever possible to lower the risk of exposure. We understand this may be difficult at this time as working families and individuals must be able to provide for themselves and their loved ones. Together with our partners, we have collected some helpful resources for anyone living in Clark County.
