When Gov. Newsom provided a dire view of California’s out-of-control surge of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations this week, he referred to projection models of future death and misery were becoming “alarmingly” more accurate. If true, then within a month the state’s hospitals could be overflowing with 75,000 patients, about five times the current level and an average of 400 people will die every day. (AP Photo/Jae C.

“Our students are our future. Our teachers and school staff help shape that future. They will be prioritized for the vaccine–and we’ll do everything we can to support them as we work to bring our students back to in-person instruction safely.” Continued Newsom.
Everyone in California is reminded, “Your actions save lives. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and keep your distance.”
