The Nevada Board of Regents recently signed off on a plan that will fold Tahoe’s Sierra Nevada University into the University of Nevada, Reno. First announced in early July, the merger could be complete as early as fall 2022, but the schools have to get approval from a number of other educational regulatory agencies. KUNR’s Paul Boger spoke with UNR President Brian Sandoval to talk about the process.

As COVID-19 deaths surpass 225,000 in the United States, UNR researchers have found some clues as to why the virus that causes COVID-19 is so contagious — and they’re discovering that it is mutating quickly. The researchers have studied the genetics of more than 8,650 samples of the virus SARS-CoV-2, collected from infected people all over Nevada.
