Union praises efforts to vaccinate state’s minorities, Sisolak’s role

Culinary Union leader Geoconda Argüello-Kline on Thursday praised the vaccination efforts for Nevada’s minority communities, and Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak’s role in making it happen.

A statement issued by the union detailed efforts to reach Black and brown communities of color — groups that have been disproportionately impacted by the effects of COVID-19.

Job losses in the hospitality industry hit Las Vegas hard, and conditions during the pandemic contributed to hardships for minorities as they waited for a chance to return to work.
