MUHSD school nurses are working closely with Merced County Department of Public Health (MDPH) who are, in turn, working closely with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and monitoring the situation. The group is also establishing protocols for schools in the event that Coronavirus does spread in Merced County. More information will be shared as this plan develops. In addition, situation updates can be found through the Centers for Disease Control. For resources, prevention tips, & information please visit the MUHSD Health Services webpage below.
