Who We Are

The Nevada COVID-19 Task Force is a group of business leaders and community members, led by Jim Murren, driven to rally the resources of the private sector to best aid the state in the response, relief and recovery from COVID-19. Our immediate focus is on reducing pressure on medical capacity, providing PPE to our front-line healthcare workers, and building support structures around the most vulnerable members of our community. By bringing the philanthropic and business communities together, we can more effectively fulfill those needs and ease the strain on Nevadans and our medical community.
