LAS VEGAS (LVPR) — We follow the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") Announcement on Thursday, March 12, 2020 with updated restrictions on visitors to federal facilities:

As the number of reported COVID-19 cases in the United States increases and the World Health Organization has classified COVID-19 as a pandemic, KIOF 97.9 FM / Las Vegas Public Radio, effective immediately, will no longer allow visitors into our Las Vegas, Nevada facilities, absent special permission from the President & CEO or Vice President. No visitor will be granted such permission unless there is a clear operational necessity. This measure will remain in effect for the foreseeable future and is being taken to help protect the health and safety of our employees and mitigate or slow the transmission of COVID-19 within the community.

As always, requests for "Live" airtime by city, county, state and federal officials will still be honored as long as the requestor has access to infrastructure to connect directly into the KIOF 97.9 FM / Las Vegas Public Radio broadcast communications network from their respective remote locations.
