Our philosophy as a business is to approach this situation with empathy, safety, and urgency. Nevada Advocates’ top priority is the health and safety of our employees and of the communities we serve, including our customers. Our company is following CDC guidelines and regulations to both aid in the slowing of COVID-19 and to protect both our staff and customers.

New Procedures for Nevada Advocates Staff:
- Travel & Large Gatherings: While large gatherings are a way for friends and family to interact, the CDC and public health officials have advised against non-essential travel and gatherings. At Nevada Advocates, we take our staff and client’s health very seriously and as such, we have requested that all staff members report any travel and large gatherings that they attend. At that point, the risk of exposure to COVID-19 will be assessed. The CDC uses the following criteria to evaluate the risk factors:
- Number of COVID-19 cases in your community
- Exposure during travel
- Setting of the event
- Length of the event
- Number and crowding of people at the event
- Behavior of attendees during an event
After assessing these risk factors, action will be taken to ensure that the risk of transmitting the virus is minimized.
- Personal Contact: With the surge of COVID-19 cases in Southern Nevada, Nevada Advocates staff will no longer shake hands or have physical contact with staff, vendors, clients nor any other individuals our paths cross with during our workday. When possible, our staff will practice CDC social-distancing regulations and maintain six feet of distance between our staff and individuals.
Conducting Business & Serving Our Clients:
- Caring for our clients remains our top priority. Our RN’s and staff will continue to attend doctor’s appointments and hospitalizations as permitted by vendor regulations.
- We are aware that due to COVID-19, there is a shortage of caregivers in the Southern Nevada area. Please notify our office directly at (702) 750-0055 if you or a loved one cannot get needed care as we will be happy to assist.
Tips to Keep Safe:
- The CDC recommends that individuals take the following precautions to aid in slowing the spread of COVID-19:
- Get vaccinated
