    Providers, in interviews with The Nevada Independent this week, said they are already seeing an uptick in emergency room and urgent care visits, though those facilities have yet to be overwhelmed as they have been in Washington state and Italy.

    “I end with my fist in the air for all the women who aren’t with us or who need to feel their strength, as I’m trying to feel mine,” Fawn Douglas told The Nevada Independent as she described a dance she choreographed titled “Rise of the Deer Woman.”
