Maria has been living in the suburban El Sereno community of Los Angeles with her husband Douglas, a younger daughter, and an elder daughter. They are neighbors with the Clark, Cruz, Tran, Ramirez, and Dawson families.
Maria, along with her daughters, fully clothed in protective gear, briefs Travis Manawa on the situation regarding her husband, who has shut himself in the master bathroom. Much to her relief, Doug is calmed down by Travis and is attended to by medical personnel as a part of mandatory screening.
Later that night, Maria and her daughters show up frantic at the Clark household. She reveals that Doug has taken his car after curfew, which is against safe zone rules, and driven off. Doug's car is found abandoned by the perimeter, and Lieutenant Moyers reveals that Doug was found by a patrol and taken into custody after he refused to calm down.
