Gov. Newsom Keeps Lockdown in Place as California Suffers Deadliest Day of Pandemic

In California, Governor Gavin Newsom said Thursday his state had suffered its “deadliest day” of the pandemic, with 115 deaths in 24 hours. Newsom said it’s still much too soon to end social distancing policies.

Gov. Gavin Newsom: “I know there’s deep desire. People are making calls on an hourly basis saying it’s time to open back up. Consider the deadliest day in the state of California within the last 24 hours, 8.5% percent increase in the total number of deaths. We saw 5.6% increase in the total number of people tested positive in the state of California.”


Despite the grim numbers, California has suffered far fewer per capita deaths from COVID-19, after public health officials moved earlier than other states to order residents to remain at home while the virus began its spread.

1. As a California resident, I am so thankful for Gov. Newsom.

It could have been so much worse.

2. California effort will employ restaurantworkers to provide meals for seniors amid coronavirus crisis

L.A. Times

Gov. Gavin Newsom said the state will soon launch a far-reaching program to provide three meals a day to California seniors in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, partnering with local officials to employ out-of-work restaurant workers with funding largely provided by the federal government.

“This partnership will allow for the ability for restaurants to start rehiring people, or keep people currently employed, and start preparing meals — three meals a day, seven days a week — and have those meals delivered to our seniors, all throughout the state of California,” Newsom said Friday. <>

Governor Newsom is awesome.

6. This is great.

I know of at least one Senior in her 80s that can certainly use this service. She is nearly blind and low income. I am going to make sure she knows about it. If she needs help to sign up, I will make sure she gets this service. A friend and I both read about this yesterday and our first thought was about this same person.
