From the City of Atwater website:
Are there any reported cases in Merced County?
As of 3-13-20, there are no known reported cases in the County, so there is no cause for undue alarm. However, we still are taking all precautions to ensure plans and contingencies are in place to help protect the public, should they be necessary. – Atwater City Council, March 14, 2020; https://www.atwater.org/2020/02/27/coronavirus
