It’s been about 24 hours since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that all coronavirus restrictions could disappear June 15 if there continues to be enough vaccines to immunize those 16 and up, as well as if COVID-19 hospitalizations remain low.
Since outrage over Newsom’s pandemic response has helped fuel the current recall effort against him, does that effort lose steam in June?
Randy Economy from Recall Gavin 2020 joined Sonseeahray to talk updates.
FOX40 also reached out to Gov. Newsom’s office for a response to complaints that his June 15 reopening date is just a move against the recall effort.
Newsom’s office replied in an email:
Throughout this pandemic, Governor Newsom has been guided by data and science. Yesterday’s announcement was no exception to that — based on improving conditions and our successful vaccine distribution — full stop. California leads the nation in total vaccines administered — distributing more than 20 million vaccines across the state, including 4 million directly to the hardest-hit communities.
We now have the lowest positivity rate in the country, death rates continue to decline, hospitalizations are low and stable, and vaccine distribution continues to rise. If we remain vigilant, keep wearing our masks and getting vaccinated, California will be ready by June 15th to open our economy and come roaring back.
