SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Gavin Newsom is providing an update on the state’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Governor will be remote as his family is quarantining after three of his children were exposed to someone who tested positive for the coronavirus.

A spokesperson says in an emailed statement that Newsom, his wife and four children all tested negative for the virus on Sunday.

This weekend, California began its overnight curfew issued by Newsom. The new restriction says no one should leave their homes after 10 p.m. unless it is essential. The curfew is designed to reduce the spread of the virus. However, many sheriff's and police chiefs have said they will not enforce the order. Read More

The U.S. hit over 12 million coronavirus cases across the country over the weekend, and over 250,000 Americans have died.

According to data from Johns Hopkins University, more than 3 million new cases were reported between Nov. 1 and Nov. 22. That's about a quarter of all U.S. cases since the beginning of this pandemic.

Thankfully, the wind is cooperating much better today in northern California. Our weather is still quite hot for this time of year and very dry. There is plenty of haze and smoke from the Fawn Fire overhead, and it isn't leaving yet.
