Kyle Edgerton is an immigration lawyer in Reno who regularly works with people seeking asylum. Before the pandemic started, immigration court proceedings were delayed across the country due to a large backlog. During the pandemic, those delays have been exacerbated.

COVID-19 hospitalizations have been steadily declining since early January. But, during their peak, many hospitals in Northern Nevada neared capacity and some surpassed that capacity, including one rural hospital in Churchill County. KUNR’s Lucia Starbuck talked to Sam Metz with the Associated Press to look back at what we’ve learned.

To learn more about this, KUNR’s Emilie Rodriguez spoke with Brian Labus, an epidemiologist with Nevada’s COVID-19 medical advisory team.
