The omicron variant of COVID-19 has already made its way to California and health officials in Washoe County say it’s only a matter of time before it will arrive in Nevada. Mountain West News Bureau reporter Bert Johnson spoke to Dr. Mark Pandori to learn more about the state’s level of preparedness. Pandori is the director of the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory.
KUNR Public Radio, Noticiero Móvil and StoryCorps, with Nevada Humanities, are hosting a free, virtual listening event for One Small Step, a conversation program that brings people together with different ideological views.

Program facilitators will highlight some of the conversations recorded this year. They will also discuss their experiences organizing the local One Small Step program. Click here to learn more and register.
