Coronavirus COVID-19 communications timeline

California-Nevada Conference Coronavirus COVID-19 Communications Timeline 
 
Editor’s Note: After weeks of sheltering in place and being immersed in news of the pandemic from across the world it is easy to lose track of where we are – home – and how we got here. With much appreciation to our United Methodist communities of faith across California and Nevada, we share this timeline of events and news releases in the hope that it may help affirm some perspective and, with a deep breath, help us to stay steady and carry on.
