Gov. Newsom quarantined after coronavirus exposure

Gov. Gavin Newsom

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Sunday night that he, along with his wife and three of their children, have entered a 14-day quarantine after being exposed to a CHP officer who tested positive for coronavirus.

Newsom and California First Lady Jennifer Siebel Newsom learned late Friday evening that they and three of their children had been exposed to the CHP officer who contracted the virus. The governor and the First Lady had no direct interaction with the officer, and on Sunday, Newsom’s entire family tested negative for coronavirus, Newsom stated in a tweet.

However, the governor, first lady and three of their four children are quarantining for 14 days, in line with local guidance.

Separately, on Friday, a spokesman for the governor said one of Newsom’s children was exposed to a classmate at school who tested positive for coronavirus. Newsom’s child tested negative for the virus, but began a 14-day quarantine without the rest of the governor’s family.

Newsom stated in a tweet he wishes the CHP officer who tested positive for coronavirus a speedy recovery.

“We are grateful for all the officers that keep our family safe and for every frontline worker who continues to go to work during this pandemic.”

Are his chef, chauffeur & nanny joining him? Did the nannies get to go to the French Laundry?

Publicity stunt. Shameless.

He probably got it at the no mask birthday party at French Laundry.

Sounds like this could’ve been prevented if he had just put the CHP on a curfew from 10PM to 5AM.

CHP officer? What’s that about? We’re they exposed while their motorcade (fuel burning) was escorted (armed of course) to their walled mansion (no illegals allowed except to clean the pool) and having to keep the kids at home (from their private school)??? At least they can be catered by French Laundry and His Honor Gov Dufus can have his epic hair cut and blown out by Pelosi’s stylist.

Oh no! The humanity! Quarantined with only a giant mansion to roam around in! And only gourmet catering for sustenance!

Not to worry I’m sure his servants are quarantined with him along with his personal chef so guaranteed he’ll still have his turkey dinner Thursday. Maybe the French Laundry delivers.

I hope the mayor of San Diego runs against Gruesome Newsome and makes Newsome a one term disaster…..

I, too hope Faulconer runs. He would be a viable option for moderates. He understands the threat of climate change, is pro-choice, supports gay marriage and wants to give the undocumented a path to citizenship. Beyond that he may be the right person to solve Cal’s homelessness problem—the homeless population in San Diego dropped 9% during his two terms.

Solving a problem and just sending a problem to other locations are two different things. Easy to reduce your homeless problem by sending your homeless to other cities and locations.

Oh well, just thought he sounded like a sensible Republican—those terms weren’t always oxymoronic. I guarantee if the GOP runs someone like McClintock, McCarthy, Nunes or some other bat guano crazy Trumpite, they will lose again.

Sounds like Newsom 2.0

CHP officer who was dining with him at French Laundrey…

What a crock. He’s sucking up to us like he’s common folk after his stunt last week.
