Monday morning Gavin Newsom shared a video featuring a bipartisan message from the last five Governors of California urging residents to wear a mask when in public.
The video by attn features current Governor Gavin Newsom (D) and former Governors Jerry Brown (D), Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), Gray Davis (D), and Pete Wilson (R). This list comprises every living Governor since 1975 and speaks the importance of the public health order making it mandatory to wear masks in public. The order was implemented by Newsom last Thursday on Jun 18th after Orange County rescinded it’s local order to wear face coverings.
“This is not about being weak, it’s about fighting the disease and keeping our families and ourselves safe,” stated the chorus of Governors. “COVID-19 is still spreading. It didn’t go away because your mall is open at 50% capacity.”
Taking a cue from Nike, the message concluded simply.
“Do your part, wear a mask. Just do it.”
