LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Experts from the UNLV School of Public Health and Southern Nevada Health District hosted a virtual, live-stream discussion on the science of COVID-19, how to minimize risks and slow transmission and where we go from here.

Nevada is just one of the many states that have taken steps to minimize the risk and spread of COVID-19 as cases increase across the state and the country. Schools have moved to remote instruction, non-essential businesses are temporarily closed, and most residents are now at home.


It is live streaming on UNLV-TV and available on UNLV’s coronavirus website.

With public health at the forefront in Nevada and worldwide, accurate, scientifically-based information is needed now more than ever.

The discussion featured:

  • Dr. Brian Labus, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the UNLV School of Public Health
  • Dr. Francisco S. Sy, Professor and Chair of the Dept. of Environmental and Occupational Health at the UNLV School of Public Health
  • Dr. Vit Kraushaar, Medical Investigator at the Southern Nevada Health District Office of Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance

This discussion will rebroadcast on Vegas PBS (KLVX-TV 10) at 9 p.m. on Monday and throughout the month of April on Cox Communications Channel 1014/14.
