SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Gavin Newsom encouraged schools to resume in-person education next year.

He wants to start with the youngest students, and promised $2 billion in state aid to promote coronavirus testing, increased ventilation of classrooms and personal protective equipment.

He said the recommendation announced Wednesday was driven by increasing evidence that there are lower risks and increased benefits from in-person instruction particularly for the youngest students.

The proposal comes as California remains consumed by a growing pandemic crisis. But hope is on the horizon as vaccines begin rolling out, with educators among those recommended for shots after the initial round goes to health care workers.

Later in the day, Gov. Newsom will join a virtual conversation with Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
