The Democrat governor of California has warned his state that they are “not going back to normal” until there is a vaccine for COVID-19.
Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has been often complimentary of President Donald Trump’s leadership during the coronavirus pandemic, revealed the news in a statement describing his recovery plan for the state. The statement read in part:
The announcement for Friday does not include offices, seated dining at restaurants, shopping malls or schools. As the Governor noted last week, the state is working with school districts and the California education community to determine how best and safely to reopen. That continues to be the case – this May 8 announcement does not move up this timeline.
Newsom said he wants the plan to work as safely as possible.
But the Democrat was quick to note that he’s not opening the flood gates entirely just yet.
“We’re not going back to normal,” the California governor said this week, according to SFGATE. “It’s a new normal with adaptations and modifications, until we get to immunity and a vaccine.”
How long will that take?
