SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California will offer six "dream vacation" incentives to spur more people to get coronavirus vaccinations.

Gov. Gavin Newsom made the offer Monday on the eve of the state's awarding of $15 million in cash prizes.

It's designed to boost the state's vaccination rate as California lifts most pandemic restrictions this week.

The latest promotion is also aimed at jump-starting the Golden State's travel and tourism industry after more than a year in virtual hibernation because of stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions.

Newsom also said he expects California's workplace regulators this week will allow employees to "self-attest" that they have been vaccinated.

August began seasonably hot on this Sunday with fewer showers and thunderstorms than previous days, but a few did still pop over the higher terrain. Our rain chances are disappearing, but the heat and smoke will remain.
