Like 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.

After 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.

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:
