#StayHomeForNevada

"As your representative, I am available to assist with questions surrounding unemployment, small business needs, concerns over health care - you name it.  As a small business owner myself, my business took steps to ensure our employees are safe, while most are working remotely.  As a wife to someone working in transportation, we are frequently checking our temperatures and making sure we wear face masks when grabbing essential items from the grocery store.  We are all in this together!"  Shea
