Jobless impact taking a toll

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation wants to remind people that its offices are closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This reminder comes because people continue to show up outside the building expecting to be able to get inside.

The state is currently dealing with a record number of people filing for unemployment insurance.

DETR is asking people to file claims on its website which was recently updated. The website has a dedicated section for businesses and people who have lost their jobs during the pandemic.
