State of Nevada Using Industrial Facility in Northern Nevada for COVID-19 Medical Response

RENO, Nev., September 24, 2020 – The State of Nevada has sublet a 125,000-square-foot industrial facility in Reno, Nevada that it will use to store medical response equipment and supplies to help support COVID-19 prevention, mitigation and treatment.

The industrial facility is located in an area known in large part for its strategic location to serve Northern Nevadans. The state also operates another storage facility in Las Vegas to serve Southern Nevadans.

Due to the critical nature and use for the equipment, it was essential that a facility was identified immediately. In collaboration with the State of Nevada, Cushman & Wakefield played an integral part in being able to quickly identify and secure the space, a role led by Brian Armon and Anthony Machabee of the firm’s local Reno office.

The Nevada Department of Emergency Management’s (DEM) mission is coordinating mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery programs and resources through partnerships to build resilient communities for Nevada’s residents and visitors.

To inform Nevadans statewide, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Governor's Office have created a website to better share information and resources as it pertains to the current status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact within the state of Nevada.
