Community Resources Available during the COVID-19 Quarantine
During these especially challenging times, we want to offer help in any way possible. We pulled together community resources available to the Las Vegas valley residents to help keep everyone safe, healthy and informed. At Southwest Medical, we understand that the current COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly evolving, and we are continuing to monitor and respond to the best of our ability. We will update the resources and tools that we come across and continue to show our support during this time of need.
