Henderson businesses look to bounce back from COVID-19 pandemic

HENDERSON, Nev. (KLAS) — The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact businesses across the valley, but things are starting to ramp back up over in Henderson. The chamber of commerce is hoping recent development projects will keep things moving in the right direction.
