The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department addressed the valley Tuesday about the number of difficulties our law enforcement officers faced in 2020. Among them, the massive Black Lives Matter-affiliated protests that swept the nation. A total of 77 protests took place right here in Las Vegas.
Mortuaries around Clark County, like Davis Funeral Homes and Memorial Park, are feeling the impact of COVID-19 related deaths. Now, they’re doing something they’ve never done before: Using refrigerated trailers to handle the increase.
First responders across the country and here in Nevada are beginning to receive their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccination. However, getting it to the general public is taking a bit longer.
