WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, as part of her statewide virtual tour, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) participated in a series of events, including: a meeting with the owners of Frey Ranch, a Churchill County distillery that has adapted to produce hand sanitizers during the COVID-19 pandemic, a discussion with the Douglas County School District to discuss the upcoming school year, a discussion of tourism in Virginia City with Storey County Commissioner Marshall McBride, and a meeting to discuss distance learning measures at Western Nevada College in Carson City.
“Nevada’s resiliency and resolve has been on full display for the nation as we work to adapt and care for one another in the face of the coronavirus crisis,” said Senator Rosen. “Today I met with a family business that has shifted its production toward hand sanitizers, providing a critical good during this difficult time. I also had the chance to discuss how our schools are preparing for the upcoming year in order to safely provide Nevada’s students with an education. These examples are part of the ingenuity and caring nature that makes our state home. I will continue working in Congress to ensure that Nevadans have what they need to weather this storm.”
