Mask Nazis Gov Newsom Gets Some Startling News
Liberal States like California have gone gung ho over the pandemic safety guidelines. It's so bad that Newsom's office even made the suggestion that residents of California should put their masks on in between bites, which is actually against what the World Health Organization suggests... But I guess not everyone in Newsom's office is following the same strict guidelines as a staffer has just tested positive.
"A member of California Gov. Gavin Newsom's office staff tested positive for COVID-19 and contact tracing has begun, the office said Wednesday.
The staff member had not interacted with Newsom or with staff who routinely interact with the governor, the statement said.
Separately, a state employee who works in a space shared with some staff from the governor's office also tested positive for COVID-19 but the person also had not interacted with the governor or his close staff, the office said.
The governor's office said it received word of both positive tests earlier this week and COVID-19 protocols for California state agencies were implemented.
“Under privacy laws, we cannot disclose the office location where these employees worked," the statement said."
“As soon as our office was informed of [the staff member’s] positive test, our Director of Operations informed all Governor’s Office staff of the case and initiated the state’s COVID-19 protocols for state agencies,” Newsom spokesman Nathan Click said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We are working with the California Department of Public Health on contact tracing.”
"Newsom said Wednesday that he has been tested for the virus on multiple occasions when the circumstances warranted, including when he visited a state prison and when he met with President Trump in Sacramento in mid-September during a briefing on the deadly wildfires in the state.
The last time he was tested was an hour before meeting with the president, and the results were negative, Newsom said. Neither state employee who tested positive attended the event with the president, Click said."
Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend? Don't forget to keep your mask on in between bites.

Can you imagine eating like this? This is nuts. The better message would be eat somewhere safe, like six feet away from each other. But it looks like even Newsom's staff is not practicing what they preach.
