California governor quarantined after exposure to CHP officer with coronavirus

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.”

    What a crock of S&*%! “He had no direct contact with the officer”, yet they are going to drastic lockdown measures for 2 weeks? Personally I think he is just trying to make up for his fancy dinner with friends! Why didn’t he quarantine after that? He DID have close contact! Someone could have been a non-symptomatic carrier, were they all tested after the meal?
