With information about the coronavirus constantly changing and its impact on northern Nevada unknown, efforts to provide Spanish speakers in the region with COVID-19 updates are taking a variety of forms. 

A patchwork of initiatives at the community, city and county levels is providing some updates, but those efforts aren’t reaching everyone. Additionally, some local Spanish speakers don’t have access to technology, including phones and computers, to access the information that is being shared.

The City of Reno held its first-ever Facebook Live event in Spanish to answer questions about the coronavirus. Councilmember Oscar Delgado shared that 48 percent, almost half, of the positive COVID-19 cases in Washoe County are Latinos. The health district does not require residents to identify their race or ethnicity, so the available data does not represent the entire portion of people in Washoe County who have tested positive.

Often, these students are first generation or "first gen" college students and face a unique set of challenges when it comes to retainment and support. KUNR’s Andrew Mendez explores.

Hospitals and clinics are federally required to provide language assistance services for individuals who speak or understand limited English. However, a study on health disparities found that nearly one-third of hospitals in the country do not provide interpretation services.
