Gov. Newsom tests positive for COVID-19

SACRAMENTO – California Gov. Gavin Newsom has tested positive for COVID-19 following a personal trip to Baja California, a spokesperson for his office said.

“Today, the governor tested positive for COVID-19 after exhibiting mild symptoms,” Deputy Communications Director Alex Stack said in a statement Wednesday night.

Newsom will work remotely and self-isolate, per California Department of Public Health guidance, Stack said. On Thursday, the governor is set to join a virtual news conference with Attorney General Rob Bonta and other state leaders to make a “major announcement.”

First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom has tested negative for COVID-19, Stack said.

The governor’s positive test follows a personal trip to Baja last week, as first reported by the Sacramento Bee. After returning to the state Sunday, Newsom met with emergency response officials and received an update on winter storms as well as the state’s work to support disaster response and relief efforts, according to Stack.
