California Gov. Newsom and Family Quarantine After Exposure To COVID-19

November 23, 2020

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov. Gavin Newsom and his family are quarantining after three of his children were exposed to someone who tested positive for coronavirus.

Newsom, his wife and four children, ages 4 to 11, all tested negative for the virus on Sunday, spokesperson Jesse Melgar said. The governor was notified Friday evening that a California Highway Patrol member who had contact with three of his children later tested positive for the virus. The California Highway Patrol provides security for Newsom and his family.

The family is quarantining at their home in Sacramento County. They will be tested regularly, Melgar said.

The governor’s quarantine comes as California experiences a rise in virus cases and as he’s imposed a fresh round of restrictions on people and businesses. Los Angeles County on Sunday announced that bars and restaurants would be restricted to takeout starting Wednesday.

A 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew took effect over the weekend and officials are warning people about getting together with family and friends for Thanksgiving.
