many of you, the NASW-Nevada Chapter (NASW-NV) has been closely
following news and updates regarding the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus),
particularly as it impacts events in the state.
much consideration and the wavering levels of uncertainty around
COVID-19 spreading in Nevada, as well as the many health risks involved
in holding in-person events, the NASW-Nevada Chapter has decided to postpone (for a future undetermined date) our 2020 Social Work Month networking events and shift our
in-person trainings to virtual offerings for the time being.
we are hopefully being overly cautious regarding this decision, the
health and safety of all of our participants and the populations
they serve is paramount. Further, one of the best practices we can do to
help slow the spread of this virus is practice social distancing within
our professional association events.
The National office of NASW has put together a webpage for social workers with resources here: https://www.socialworkers.org/Practice/Infectious-Diseases/Coronavirus

We are extremely grateful for the work you do on behalf of our profession and the clients you serve. The
staff at the NASW-NV chapter wishes you strength and good health during this time.
