Nevada businesses are facing an unprecedented drop in revenue. In order to respond quickly to Nevada’s businesses during this health crisis, GOED has developed a survey to help obtain crucial information from businesses so we can respond quickly.
Please take a few minutes to fill in this survey. Your input is necessary to support policy and decision makers as we respond to the needs of our business community during this pandemic.
To help with this process, manufacturers are encouraged to complete the Nevada Manufacturing Survey for Medical Supplies. The purpose of this survey is to provide manufacturers with the opportunity to support our Silver State’s medical needs with production capabilities, inventory, and/or repurposing and/or retooling manufacturing processes to produce Nevada-specific health care in-demand products for fighting COVID-19.
