Closed businesses and organizations in Nevada are reopening or planning to reopen in the wake of the COVID-19-triggered shutdown following Gov. Steve Sisolak's reopening requirements and timing.

While it can't resume normal operations for its 10,000 youth members due to COVID-19 health concerns immediately, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada is tentatively planning to reopen six of the nonprofit’s 13 clubs on June 1. Clubhouses will reopen in compliance with safety guidelines provided by the Governor’s office and the Southern Nevada Health District.

MicroGerm Defense is a national environmental services company operating in several states that specializes in anti-microbial treatment of public spaces to combat bacteria, fungi, e-coli, and complex viruses, including the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.

Newly operating in Nevada, MicroGerm Defense is donating its services to Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada for its first-phase reopening and later for treatment of its other reopening clubs. The company is also donating 2,500 masks to the nonprofit.

An announcement of the partnership and demonstration of the product's application at the James Clubhouse will be May 14.
