    On Wednesday, February 10, 2021, at  approximately 11:30 a.m. PDT, Governor Gavin Newsom provided an update on California’s efforts to ramp up COVID-19 vaccinations in Fresno.  He was joined by local representatives, including Senator Melissa Hurtado, Assemblymember Joaquin Arambula, Fresno Mayor Jerry Dyer, Congressman Jim Costa, and others.

    Joe Prado, who is leading the vaccine distribution effort in Fresno County, kicked off the press conference with introductory remarks.  He spoke about the importance of equity when it comes to vaccine distribution.  Following his comments, other representatives, including Assemblymember Joaquin Arambula and Senator Melissa Hurtado, spoke and thanked the Governor for his efforts to address the pandemic, making mention of the tough decisions faced.  Among the comments made, Mayor Dyer stated, "The thing we need just as much as vaccines is unity.”  He was urging people not point fingers as California awaits more vaccine doses.  Congressman Costa made similar comments.

    As has occurred in all of his vaccine site press conference events this week, Newsom again received praise from local officials before being introduced to give his comments.  However, today, protesters shouting "Recall Gavin!" and chanting were audible in the background of the livestream of the press conference.

    Governor Newsom then spoke and provided an update on the latest COVID-19 figures.  "We've seen progress in every category,'' he said. One month ago, the state reported over 50,000 cases. Today, 8,400 cases were reported. One month ago, the state reported a 13.9% test positivity rate.  Hospitalization rates and ICU admissions are also trending downward.

    Additionally, the Governor briefly addressed the issue of COVID-19 variants.  He noted that two cases of the South African variant have now been detected in California. 

    On reopening schools, Newsom stated that a deal with the Legislature allowing for students to return to in-person instruction could come as soon as Friday. 

    Finally, Newsom spoke about the process that has been made regarding vaccine distribution statewide, but also in the Central Valley. Thus far, he stated that 1 in 10 people have been vaccinated in California.  He highlighted Maria Suarez, who is 85 and a former farm worker who lives in Fresno.  Newsom said she just helped California pass a new milestone — 5 million vaccines administered. 

    Newsom also announced that new vaccine sites are coming to the Central Valley for those hardest hit by COVID-19, including farmworkers.  Reedley College will be the first of the OptumServe sites to be turned into a COVID-19 vaccination site.  He hopes it will be up and running by February 18th and said it could provide more than 400 shots a day.

    During the Q&A portion of the presser, Newsom was asked about youth sports.  He said he has been working on this issue and is hopeful to make further announcements soon.

    Regarding the state’s contract with Blue Shield on vaccine distribution, Newsom reiterated that he state will formalize this relationship next week.

    "I'm focused every single day on getting businesses open, our schools reopened," Newsom responded when asked what he would say to small business owners and other angry Californians who want him recalled.  Again, he did not comment on recall efforts.

    The press conference concluded at approximately 12:20 AM PDT. 

    The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19.  There is now a total of 3,354,591 (+0.2 percent increase) confirmed positive cases and 44,477  (+0.7 percent) deaths in California.  As of February 7th, there have been 44,583,304 tests conducted in California and reported to the California Department of Public Health. A total of 4,914,630 vaccines have been administered.

    The City of El Monte passed this Urgency Ordinance the week of February 8, 2021 which places a temporary moratorium on self storage evictions.

    On Tuesday, February 9, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom joined the San Francisco 49ers and the County of Santa Clara in hosting a press conference to announce the opening of Levi’s Stadium as a COVID-19 vaccination site for residents of Santa Clara County.  The site will have the capacity to give 15,000 shots/day when supply increases.

    Newsom said one month ago, the state reported 53,000 cases. Today, 8,251 cases were reported. One month ago, the state reported a 14% test positivity rate. Today, the positivity rate is 4.8%.  However, the Governor did note that even as the daily number of new coronavirus cases has dropped to less than a fifth of what it was a month ago, California is still averaging more than 500 deaths per day over the past two weeks.  Also, hospitalizations are down 34% in last 2 weeks.  ICU admissions are down 26% in last 2 weeks.

    Additionally, the Governor briefly spoke about the COVID-19 variants, working with the Biden Administration, and the anticipated Johnson & Johnson vaccine.  Again, Newsom stated the contract with Blue Shield and Kaiser for vaccine distribution will be made public on February 15th

    During the Q&A portion of the presser, Newsom was asked about the recall and he sidestepped the question by stating he is not focused on those efforts. "I'm focusing on increasing vaccines," he said.

    Also, no deal yet but progress is being made on reopening schools.  Specifically, Newsom said negotiations on schools are focused on statewide standards on vaccinations, PPE, testing, spacing and other safety measures. They are also negotiating over possible extensions to the school year and school days to make up for lost learning.

    Newsom is also hoping to reach a deal on allowing more youth sports this week.

    When asked why mass vaccination sites are just open to residents of specific counties, such as Levi’s Stadium only being open to Santa Clara County, Newsom cited concerns of individuals jumping in line.

    In response to recent judicial rulings, the state guidance for places of worship has been updated.  Read the guidance.

    Asked specifically about vaccinations for teachers, Newsom said he believes schools can reopen safely before every single person in the school is vaccinated.

    The press conference concluded at approximately 9:40 AM PDT. 

    The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19.  There is now a total of 3,346,340 (+0.3 percent increase) confirmed positive cases and 44,150  (+0.5 percent) deaths in California.  As of February 7th, there have been 44,323,530 tests conducted in California and reported to the California Department of Public Health. A total of 4,746,539 vaccines have been administered.

    On Monday, February 8, 2021, at noon PDT, Governor Gavin Newsom joined local leaders at the Petco Park Vaccination Super Station in San Diego, one of the many locations administering COVID-19 vaccinations in communities across the state.  In less than a month, the site has administered over 100,000 vaccinations -- averaging 5,000 people a day, 7 days a week.

    San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria kicked off the presser by providing introductory remarks.  He praised the Governor’s leadership and stated that Newsom has consistently done the right thing to protect public health, even when it has been difficult. Other local representatives present included San Diego County Supervisors Nathan Fletcher and Nora Vargas, San Diego Padres CEO Erik Greupner, and San Diego County’s Public Health Officer Dr. Wilma Wooten.   Notably, each of them celebrated/defended Governor Newsom's pandemic related decisions. 

    Then, Newsom spoke and provided the latest COVID-19 case numbers.  Again, he reported, "Everything that should be up is up, everything that should be down is down." Specifically, Newsom said California is down from around 60,000 COVID-19 cases a day to just over 10,000.  Overall, cases are down 29 percent in the last 7 days. The seven-day positivity rate is down from 14.3 percent in early January to 5 percent over the last seven days.  Also, he noted that hospitalization rates, ICUs patients are dropping steadily.  Hospitalizations are down 34 percent in the last 2 weeks. ICU admissions are down 25 percent in the last 2 weeks

    On vaccines, Newsom said California has now administered over 4.65 million doses.  He also highlighted the importance of these “additive” mass vaccination sites like Petco Park and said a new site in the Central Valley will be announced soon.  Further, the Governor said the state has been able to speed up the pace of vaccinations in part by redistributing vaccine doses from areas that are not able to use up their supply quickly to other places that have run out. 

    Additionally, he briefly spoke about the COVID-19 variants, working with the Biden Administration, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.  Again, Newsom stated the contract with Blue Shield and Kaiser for vaccine distribution will be made public on February 15th

    During the Q&A portion of the briefing, Newsom said "flexibility is challenging when there is scarcity," referring to when different groups, like teachers, can get vaccinated.  He said he has been working with the Legislature on reopening schools safely and hopes to announce a “prioritization framework” to get teachers vaccinated “very, very soon.”  The state already allows teachers to get shots now, along with 65+ tier, but counties are short on supply – "We want to clarify that further."

    The Governor declined to answer a question about how much discretion Blue Shield will have in allocating vaccine doses.  He said that the details of the agreement with Blue Shield to manage distribution are still being worked out. Newsom will “socialize” those details later this week on February 15th.

    When it comes to where people with disabilities and underlying conditions should be placed in vaccine distribution line, Newsom said, "Dr. Ghaly and I made a pact to resolve this once and for all by the end of the week."

    Right now, distribution of first vs. second vaccine doses is up to counties, Secretary of the California Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly conveyed.  For context, California has reported administering first shots to 3.8 million people. Of those, 847,000 have received both vaccine doses, according to CDC data.

    More on reopening schools, Newsom said the biggest obstacles are “fear” and “trust.” – "We need to prove that we can safely reopen our schools."

    Regarding the Central Valley, Newsom said that initially more vaccines were sent to some parts of the state because they had more health workers, who were the first group to receive vaccines. But now he promises to send more to the Central Valley and referenced his earlier comments about a mass vacation site there.

    When it comes to reaching diverse communities, Newsom said the state has a $40M public messaging campaign around vaccinations that will be spread across the state. He also added that state is "learning from the lessons of the Census" and working with community organizations.  

    The briefing concluded at approximately 12:55 PM PDT. 

    The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19.  There is now a total of 3,335,926 (+0.5 percent increase) confirmed positive cases and 43,942 (+0.7 percent) deaths in California.  As of February 6th, there have been 43,994,322 tests conducted in California and reported to the California Department of Public Health. A total of 4,650,637 vaccines have been administered.

    On Wednesday, February 3, 2021, at 10 a.m. PDT, Governor Gavin Newsom provided an update on the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccine distribution efforts.

    Prior to the briefing, the Governor’s office announced a pilot project with the Biden-Harris Administration to establish community vaccination sites in Oakland and Los Angeles.  According to a press release, these pilot sites, which will be based at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum and California State University, Los Angeles, are part of the wider effort to establish 100 vaccination sites nationwide in the federal administration’s first 100 days. The sites will be co-run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the State of California through the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES).  The sites are expected to be open to eligible members of the public beginning February 16th.  Registration for vaccine appointments at these two sites will be available through the state’s MyTurn scheduling system in the coming days.

    Today’s briefing today took place at the Oakland Coliseum to unveil the new vaccination site.  At the start, Oakland A's President Dave Kaval and Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf provided introductory remarks.  Other local representatives were present, including Assemblymember Rob Bonta and Senator Nancy Skinner.  Then, Newsom spoke in greater detail about this partnership with the Biden Administration. "The whole idea is to speed up the throughput," and "maintain an equitable lens," he said.

    Newsom also provided the latest COVID-19 case numbers. "Everything that should be up is up, everything that should be down is down," he reported. Specifically, Newsom said California is down from 60,000 COVID-19 cases a day to just 10,501 yesterday.  The seven-day positivity rate is down from 14.3 percent in early January to 6.1 percent over the last seven days.  Also, he noted hospitalizations rates, ICUs patients are dropping steadily. 

    On the vaccine, Newsom said California is administering more than 1 million doses per week, tripling the pace of vaccinations from a month ago.  He said the state has given out more than 64 percent of its COVID-19 vaccine doses so far, and now ranks 30th among the 50 states, per Bloomberg tracker.   Further, Newsom stated the contracts with Blue Shield and Kaiser for vaccine distribution will be made public on February 15th

    Following Newsom’s remarks, Senator Skinner offered some complimentary comments about the Governor’s leadership.  She said thanked Newsom for helping bringing the surge down.  A local county supervisor also provided favorable remarks about the Governor and his efforts.   Notably, each speaker this morning celebrated/defended Governor Newsom's pandemic related decisions.

    During the Q&A portion of the briefing, Newsom said that the state has been assured it will receive sufficient additional doses to accelerate vaccine program, at least 6,000 a day.  

    Regarding recent polls showing low approval rates of his Administration’s vaccination efforts, Newsom replied by citing the progress being made. He also said that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be a “game-changer.”

    Newsom dismissed the suggestion that he chose Blue Shield to run the vaccine program because of close political ties and their campaign support.  He said, “they have the kind of scale, they have the capacity, they have the allocation distribution mindset that we were looking for.”

    Asked about schools reopening, Newsom said, "I believe we can safely reopen schools and I want to do it in a sustainable way."  Senator Skinner added that the Legislature is hammering out details to reopen schools and that she is confident they will get there.  Regarding whether all teachers need to be vaccinated before reopening, Newsom cited CDC guidance and says he believes teachers can safely return to classrooms "as" they're being vaccinated. 

    Regarding appointments, Newsom said he is "very close" to making a decision on the next Attorney General, but won't make that announcement until Xavier Becerra is confirmed as Biden's HHS secretary.

    The briefing concluded at approximately 11:00 AM PDT. 

    The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19.  There is now a total of 3,270,770 (+0.4 percent increase) confirmed positive cases and 41,330 (+1.2 percent) deaths in California.  As of January 23rd, there have been 42,851,891 tests conducted in California and reported to the California Department of Public Health.  More information regarding the most recent COVID-19 statistics can be found here

    Governor Newsom Signs Legislation to Extend Eviction Moratorium and Assist Tenants and Small Property Owners Impacted by COVID-19

    Legislation extends statewide eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021 and protects tenants’ credit

    Creates State Rental Assistance Program to allocate $2.6 billion in federal rental assistance dollars to assist struggling tenants and small property owners

    SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom today signed legislation to extend the state’s landmark eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021, protecting millions of Californians struggling as a result of the economic hardships brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the passage of SB 91, California leads all states by enacting the strongest renter protections in the nation.

    “Once again, California is leading the way by enacting the strongest eviction protections in the nation, which will provide relief for millions of Californians dealing with financial difficulties as a result of COVID-19,” said Governor Newsom. “This law not only provides greatly needed support for tenants, but also provides relief to small property owners in need of assistance to pay for mortgages, thanks to $2.6 billion in federal stimulus funding.”

    On Monday, Governor Newsom, Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced an agreement on the legislation to extend the eviction moratorium established last year under AB 3088, which was set to expire at the end of the month.

    “Today, we took the boldest action in the nation to protect California renters and support mom and pop landlords, but we know that we have more work to do and that we need to help the folks hurting in our communities understand how to access this critically-needed help,” said Senate President pro Tempore Atkins. “This is an important step. But it’s not the last step, and we will keep working on this issue so that no one has to walk this path alone.”

    The legislation signed today pauses evictions for tenants who declare under penalty of perjury an inability to pay all or part of the rent due to a COVID-related reason. Tenants are still responsible for paying unpaid amounts to property owners, but those unpaid amounts cannot be the basis for an eviction, even after the moratorium ends.

    SB 91 also establishes the State Rental Assistance Program to allocate the $2.6 billion in federal rental assistance California will receive. The program will target aid to income-qualified tenants most at-risk with unpaid back rent. Assistance will also be extended to property owners who agree to waive 20 percent of unpaid rent. By agreeing to this waiver, property owners will become eligible for 80 percent in rent reimbursements for amounts owed between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021.

    "Those of us pushing to get this done knew that there were literally homes and lives at stake. I am grateful for the collaboration that helped us succeed in the face of a very tight deadline. Our work is not over- we must push to find more lasting solutions that protect Californians at risk,” said Speaker Rendon.

    Approximately $150 million of the federal funds will be reserved for tenants in counties with populations of 200,000 or less and the additional funds will be available to counties with populations larger than 200,000. The state will directly administer $1.5 billion through contracted entities, and local governments can either join forces with the state or administer their own programs. The State Rental Assistance Program will begin accepting applications from property owners and tenants in March.

    SB 91 prohibits the selling or assigning of rental debt that was accrued from March 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 until the end of the moratorium. However, the prohibition is permanent with respect to the rental debt of people at or below 80 percent of Area Median Income who meet the eligibility requirements of the Rental Assistance Program. Property owners or other housing providers are also prohibited from using COVID-19 related debt as a negative factor for evaluating a housing application, or as the basis for refusing to rent to an otherwise qualified tenant.

    The Governor signed the following bills into law today:

    ·         SB 89 by Senator Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) – Budget Act of 2020.

    ·         SB 91 by the Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review – COVID-19 relief: tenancy: federal rental assistance.

    Today’s legislation and AB 3088 build on the state’s strongest-in-the-nation rent cap and eviction protections passed by the Legislature and signed into law by the Governor in 2019. Continuing efforts to address the housing availability and affordability crisis that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor’s proposed 2021-22 State Budget provides $500 million for infill infrastructure and an additional $500 million in low-income housing tax credits to support low-income housing development. The Administration is streamlining and reorganizing state housing programs to maximize housing production, while also continuing to support affordable housing.

    The Governor has signed major legislation to boost housing production, remove barriers to construction of accessory dwelling units and create an ongoing source of funding for borrower relief and legal aid to vulnerable homeowners and renters. The 2019-20 State Budget made a historic $1.75 billion investment in new housing and created major incentives for cities to approve new home construction. In the first weeks of his administration, Governor Newsom signed an executive order that created an inventory of all excess state land and the Administration has launched partnerships with California cities to develop affordable housing on that land.

    California has launched the “Housing is Key” campaign in vulnerable communities aimed at connecting renters and property owners with helpful information and resources.

    Newsom Administration Supplements Vaccine Delivery System; Announces Creation of Statewide Vaccine Delivery Network to Simplify and Standardize Vaccination Process With Equity as a Core Focus

    New system will partner with counties on health education, outreach to hard-to-reach communities

    Third-party administrator will come on board to streamline, improve and expedite vaccine administration, with ability to scale

    Californians can go to MyTurn.Ca.Gov to sign up for notification now, scheduling tool to launch February statewide

    SACRAMENTO – Based on learnings from the 10-Day Vaccine Challenge, the Newsom Administration detailed a series of vaccine delivery system changes to focus each sector of the health care system on their core competencies and expedite vaccine administration.

    The vaccine distribution and operations effort will be led by Yolanda Richardson, Secretary of the Government Operations Agency, in consultation and partnership with Dr. Mark Ghaly, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the California Department of Public Health. While vaccines remain extremely limited, the goal is to build a system to equitably and efficiently administer vaccines when supply increases.

    “Our state and county public health leaders have done the important groundwork to get California’s vaccination plan up and running and we are grateful to them and will continue to partner with them,” said Governor Newsom. “We have learned that to accelerate pace we need to dial up the scale of our efforts to ensure vaccine supply goes into arms as quickly as it arrives in the state. This collaboration between Secretaries Ghaly and Richardson continues our approach to lead with public health and add Secretary Richardson’s expertise in operations and with the health care delivery system which will be pivotal in implementing these improvements to get all Californians vaccinated safely and swiftly, with equity as our North Star.”

    Specifically, the state will implement three changes based on the lessons learned from the 10-Day Vaccine Challenge.

    Simplifying Eligibility: In simplifying eligibility beginning mid-February, the state will implement a statewide standard under which health care workers, individuals 65+ and education and child care, emergency services and food and agriculture workers will be eligible to start making appointments to receive the vaccine, pending vaccine availability. These are the groups identified in Phase 1B, Tier 1.

    Future groups will become eligible based on age. This statewide standard will move in unison across all 58 counties. This will allow the state to scale capacity up while also ensuring the vaccine goes to disproportionately impacted communities.

    Standardizing Information and Data: Leveraging California’s innovation and technology assets, the state is officially launching My Turn today, a new system for Californians to learn when they are eligible to be vaccinated, a place to make an appointment when eligible and a mechanism to easily track vaccination data. Through My Turn, individuals can sign up for a notification when they are eligible to make an appointment and schedule one when it is their turn. My Turn will also help track those who have yet to receive a second vaccine dose and need additional outreach.

    Technology from California companies Salesforce and Skedulo are the foundation for My Turn. Having been piloted in Los Angeles and San Diego counties, individuals can visit https://myturn.ca.gov to register for a notification immediately. Scheduling appointments beyond the pilot counties is expected to be available in February.

    The My Turn system will also automatically report vaccination information into state data systems. Providers will be required to either administer vaccines via the My Turn scheduling system or an electronic health record with an automatic data feed into the state’s system. This will reduce data lags and give us real-time information on how we are doing at the local and statewide levels.

    Addressing Available Supply by Streamlining Vaccination Process: Based on recent learnings, the state vaccine team will build on the work of counties and health providers to coordinate vaccine delivery statewide, with an eye toward ensuring safety, equity and the fastest possible delivery of vaccine.

    California will build a statewide vaccine administration network to speed the equitable delivery of current supply to eligible Californians. The state, through a Third Party Administrator (TPA), will allocate vaccines directly to providers to maximize distribution efficiency. This will also give the state greater visibility into what is happening on the ground.

    The vaccine provider network is expected to include public health systems, pharmacies, health systems, public hospitals, community health centers, pharmacies and pop-up and mobile sites with an immediate focus on allocating to today’s high-throughput providers. The vaccine provider network will expand as vaccine supply grows and vaccine characteristics change, with fixed and mobile sites used to meet the needs of individual communities. Local public health systems will continue to play a key role as vaccine providers and by providing their unique insights and knowledge to ensure the network reaches disproportionately affected Californians.

    The new approach will continue to focus on equity. Vaccines will be allocated to make sure low-income neighborhoods and communities of color have access to vaccines, and providers will be compensated in part by how well they are able to reach underserved communities. Real-time data will allow for adjustments to be made if initial equity targets are not met.

    While the state will drive faster administration of available vaccine supply, overall vaccine supply into California will continue to be dictated by the Federal government.

    Secretary Richardson is an operations expert with 25 years of management experience in the private and public sector, including a leadership role where she helped launch Covered California. She also has deep experience with the health care delivery system, serving as Chief Operating Officer at San Francisco Health Plan, and leadership positions at health information exchange Cal eConnect and vision care health insurance company Vision Service Plan.

    Secretary Richardson will work closely with California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly, who leads the state’s health care services, social services, mental health services, alcohol and drug services, income assistance and public health services.

    Governor Newsom, Legislative Leaders Issue Statement on Eviction Moratorium Extension

    SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom, Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon today issued the following joint statement on the extension of the eviction moratorium to protect Californians impacted by COVID-19:

    “COVID-19 continues to devastate communities across our state and too many Californians remain one paycheck away from losing their apartments or homes. These families need protection and relief now. 

    “Today, we are announcing an agreement to extend the eviction moratorium in California through June 30, 2021 – protecting tenants and small landlords from losing their housing as the nation continues to confront the pandemic. We are also moving forward as quickly as possible to deploy California’s share of the latest federal stimulus bill – ensuring that up to $2.6 billion in renter aid is administered quickly, equitably and accountably.  

    “These critically needed federal funds, targeted to the most at-risk households with unpaid back rent, will help tenants stay afloat during and after this pandemic. Income-qualified tenants and their landlords can choose to receive direct rental assistance in exchange for forgiving prior rental debt.  

    “While we are proud of this agreement, which maintains California’s COVID eviction protections as the strongest statewide rules in the nation, our work is far from over. This eviction moratorium and rapid deployment of funds to the most at-risk are among our top priorities. But we have more work to do, together, to tackle the structural housing cost crisis in California. The pandemic exacerbated these issues, it did not create them. And our work to address these fundamental issues must continue with urgency and resolve. 

    “We thank the many stakeholders who have engaged in this process for the past several months, and we recommit ourselves to the work ahead to maintain California’s position as the most compassionate, progressive state in America.”
