COVID-19 Update

Sample

 
California has been under a state of emergency since March 4, 2020. Since then, Newsom has authorized billions of dollars in emergency spending and issued at least 47 executive orders to alter or suspend 200 state laws and regulations because of the virus, according to a resolution authored by Republican state senators.
With this extension, Newsom will have emergency orders for more than two years.
With the emergency remaining in effect, Newsom has the flexibility to take certain steps in case something were to happen. Possible examples include if a new variant were to hit California; if a snag happens with vaccine supply; if people suddenly stop getting vaccinated; or if hospitalization, death rates or test positivity go up
