The purpose of the Coronavirus Self-Checker is to help you make decisions about seeking appropriate medical care. This system is not intended for the diagnosis or treatment of disease or other conditions, including COVID-19. This system is intended only for people who are currently located in the United States.

 

 

All schools in Clark County Nevada are closed due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Some kids only eat at school and don't have transportation. We've decided to donate a Limo & Driver for families in need of transportation (there is a six foot separation of passengers and driver and a partition separating the driver from passengers), why let the car just sit when it can be put to good use.

Having been certified with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), we are organizing volunteers to help families in need of transportation to the CCSD's food pickup points.

   

 

BUT GAS is EXPENSIVE, so we're asking for support for fuel, please click the button below to help. 

 

A BIG THANK YOU TO ROCK 76 Gas Station for your donation to kick-off this campaign of service.

 

Rock 76 Gas Station
8615 W Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89147

(Corner of Durango and Flamingo)

OPEN 24Hrs

 

Re: Health concerns:

1) The driver is separated by a partition to prevent contact during transportation

2.) Transportation will only be provided to one family/household at a time.

3.) The vehicle is sanitized with medically grade disinfectants after each pick-up and drop off.

4.)  Due to limitations in range and area, we can only service a limited area.

Some companies have a need for extra help during the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s an ongoing list of hiring in the Las Vegas area:

U.S. Postal Service

The U.S. Postal Service is hiring multiple positions at post offices in Nevada. The jobs will pay $16 to $19 an hour at a variety of shifts for both indoor and outdoor work. People should apply at the Postal Service’s website. Applicants must be at least 18 years old.

Papa John’s

Papa John’s is hiring 20,000 people to help support communities across the country. “For anyone looking for immediate ways to earn an income, we’re making it quick and simple to apply, interview and be hired at Papa John’s,” said Marvin Boakye, Papa John’s chief people and diversity officer, said in a news release. Applicants can go to the pizza company’s website.

Support.com

Support.com is expanding its operations and hiring people for remote support agent roles to meet the growing demand from businesses that need customer, technical and call center support for their operations or customers. “We’re honored to be in the position to create meaningful job opportunities for the rising number of Americans currently facing unemployment in this time of global crisis,” CEO Rick Bloom said in a news release. People can apply for positions on the company’s website.

DM Productions

DM Productions is hiring people in Las Vegas to field customer service calls for Fortune 500 companies from their home. “I think people here could really use my assistance,” owner Dan Steele said. “This could mean freedom from having to leave the house and worry about your day-to-day operations.” Applicants must pass a federal background check and a drug test that meets federal standards. Call 702-421-3017 or go to the company’s website to apply.

7‑Eleven

7‑Eleven and its independent franchise owners expect as many as 20,000 new store employees will be hired in the near future to meet increased demand and services. “This will provide job opportunities and ensure 7‑Eleven stores remain clean and in-stock with the goods our customers need during this critical time,” company President and CEO Joe DePinto said in a news release. Applicants should go to 7-Eleven’s website or inquire at their local store.

Albertsons

Albertsons announced it is partnering with 17 companies that have “furloughed” workers, including MGM Resorts and Marriott International, to hire 30,000 people for temporary, part-time jobs.

“The most valuable asset and the core of any business is people, and we are working hard with many human resource teams across a variety of businesses who are actively defining next steps for their employees,” Albertsons President and CEO Vivek Sankaran said in a statement. “We are grateful to be a resource to help fill a critical need in our own business and take care of people who want to continue working during this time of national emergency.”

Dedicated application sites have been established for employees from participating companies, Albertsons said in a news release. The partnering companies will provide links when they notify their employees about the part-time opportunities with the grocery chain.

Last week, Albertsons said on a Facebook post, “We need your help. We’re hiring for immediate openings! Apply at your local store or online now.”

CVS Health

CVS Health said it is embarking on the most ambitious hiring drive in the pharmacy company’s history, with plans to immediately fill 50,000 full-time, part-time and temporary jobs across the country. Roles include store associates, home delivery drivers, distribution center employees and customer service professionals. “Our colleagues have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to providing essential goods and services at a time when they’re needed the most,” CEO Larry J. Merlo said in a news release. CVS Health plans to utilize a technology-enabled hiring process that includes virtual job fairs, interviews and job tryouts. Applicants can go to www.cvshealth.com/.

Smart & Final

Smart & Final is hiring temporary workers to help with cleaning and stocking at their warehousing-style grocery stores. “We’ve hired more than 750 new employees in just six days, and we are continuing to welcome individuals with a desire to help their communities until their affected businesses recover,” CEO & President Dave Hirtz said in a statement. People can aply at www.smartandfinal.com/careers.

Amazon

Amazon is still hiring in Nevada, a spokeswoman said. Amazon said last week it would hire 100,000 people across the U.S. to keep up with a crush of orders. No previous work experience is required. Because jobs open on a rolling basis, the spokeswoman said, the best way to get notified of open positions is by signing up for an alert online at www.amazon.com/jobsnow.

Dominos

Domino’s Pizza said that it is hiring about 10,000 workers in the U.S. to meet rising demand for delivery and carryout. Domino’s put out the call for delivery drivers, pizza makers, managers and truck drivers. Domino’s U.S. stores remain open for carryout and it is also offering contact-less delivery. Domino’s U.S supply chain centers are also hiring Class A CDL drivers, according to a press release. Go to jobs.dominos.com to apply.

Smith’s Food & Drug Stores are looking to hire people to stock shelves and help with deep cleaning the stores. “To help alleviate the increased workload, we are hiring immediately to make sure we have the food and supplies our customers need in a clean, orderly store environment,” a spokeswoman said in a news release. People can apply at www.smithsfoodand drug.com or at any local Smith’s store.

Walmart

Walmart is also hiring 150,000 new associates through the end of May to work in stores, clubs, distribution centers and fulfillment centers. In Nevada, the company is hiring 1,300 people. These roles will be temporary at first, but many will convert to permanent roles over time, according to a release on the website. The company is also implementing a new process to dramatically expedite hiring for key roles, like cashiers. Normally a two-week application cycle, it will be reduced to a 24-hour process. Anyone interested in applying should do so at careers.walmart.com.

Walmart is also growing the trucking fleet by more than 500 truck drivers this year, mainly across the West and East Coast. Interested drivers who meet Walmart’s criteria can apply at Drive4Walmart.com.

The company also is hiring at two othert companies, the Artisan Hotel and Pinkbox Doughnuts. “We’re looking for talented people because we believe the economy is going to come back strong and we’re not going anywhere,” said Siegel Group Senior Vice President Michael Crandall.

Clark County School District Closure

Food Distribution Information for School-age children in Clark County

 

 
March 17, 2020

The Clark County School District (CCSD) will continue providing breakfast and lunch to students during the closure of the schools. Student food distribution pods will be set up at 28 school locations throughout the district from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday. Parents can also pick up academic resources in the near future at these sites.
