California: Governor Gavin Newsom spoke at a news briefing on Monday, April 27th 2020 regarding the large crowds of people seen over the weekend on beaches in Orange County and Ventura counties.
Well most California beachgoers followed the guidelines, Governor Gavin Newsom said he saw too many images of those who weren’t following those guidelines; scolding beachgoers who didn’t followed the guidelines.
“We can’t see the images we saw, particularly on Saturday in Newport Beach and elsewhere,” said California Governor Gavin Newsom, adding “This virus doesn’t take the weekend off. This virus doesn’t go home because it’s a beautiful sunny day around our coasts.”
Governor Gavin Newsom said that he would be talking to local officials where social distancing guidelines weren’t being followed, and acknowledge officials on the Newport Beach City Council and County Broad of supervisors in Orange County as they are, “considering some augmentations and some deliberate engagement to address those conditions and concerns that were highlighted over the weekend.”
California Governor Gavin Newsom then said that they’re doing the same at the State level; saying that the California Highway Patrol, the State Park Patrol and other partners, and we will avail ourselves to “more aggressive enforcement of the Stay-At-Home order and the social distancing in the guidelines that we expect to be followed all across the State of California.”
Governor Gavin Newsom said Californians “over the course of the last number of weeks, we have not only bent the curve in the state of California but stabilized it. We have made real progress in this state,” But added that the COVID-19 virus isn’t going to go away on its own.
“The only thing that will set us back is our behavior,” California Governor Gavin Newsom warned.
