There is no state or jurisdiction which is harder hit by the coronavirus pandemic than Nevada. Virginia Valentine has led the Nevada Resort Association since 2011 and has seen some tough times but nothing like this. The numbers are staggering—Up to 360,000 jobs lost, $% billion in wages at risk, $2 billion lost in meetings and conventions cancelled, a total impact on the state of Nevada of over $22 billion. Still Valentine believes that the health and safety of state residents and visitors comes first so any reopening must be planned and discussed. She spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from her home in Las Vegas on April 15.
