While these requests that you are about to read may seem extreme, we would like to do our part to help flatten the curve and protect our community members who are most vulnerable to this virus. At this time, we do not have a locally hospital and we need to be Coalinga strong, looking out for each other and coming together as a community.
As such, we are requesting businesses consider the following now through April 12, 2020:

Our resources are limited. We do not have a local hospital and the hospitals around us only have a finite number of hospital beds, medical staff, and medical equipment. We only have a finite number of ambulances and Fire Department staff.
