Newsom to unveil next steps of California's Covid response as state shifts focus to 'endemic phase'

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on February 17 will unveil his state's plan for the "next phase" of the Covid-19 pandemic in San Bernardino County.

SACRAMENTO, Cal. -- The office of California's governor says today he has COVID-19.

Governor Gavin Newsom says he tested positive for COVID-19 Saturday.  The 54-year-old governor has mild symptoms and will remain in isolation at least through Thursday and until he tests negative.  He says he will begin a five-day regimen of the Paxlovid antiviral.

Newsom received his second booster vaccine this month.  His office said it has notified the delegation of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. The two leaders met in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on Friday.
