(RepublicanPress.org) – The nation remains on high alert regarding the coronavirus pandemic as winter and the holiday season approaches. On November 19, the California Department of Public Health and Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a limited Stay at Home Order. It restricts non-essential movement between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. in counties hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even with these precautions, Newsom had a close call.
On Sunday, November 22, Newsom announced he went into self-imposed isolation along with members of his family after learning three of his children were exposed to a California state trooper who tested positive for the virus. The trooper was providing security services to the family.
Late Friday evening, @JenSiebelNewsom and I learned that 3 of our children had been exposed to an officer from the California Highway Patrol who had tested positive for COVID-19.

Newsom’s office stated the family tested negative for the virus on Sunday morning and would continue testing throughout their 14-day quarantine.
The announcement came amid controversy regarding the governor’s conduct during the pandemic. Newsom apologized last week for attending a large indoor gathering at a Napa Valley restaurant with people from several households. Do as I order and not as I do appears to be the mantra of Newsom and other Democratic leaders.
