One of Gov. Newsom's children quarantines after potential COVID-19 exposure

One of California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) children is currently undergoing a COVID-19 quarantine, Politico reports.

The child, not named for privacy reasons, was at school with a student who tested positive for coronavirus. So far, Newsom and all four of his children have tested negative for COVID-19.

“The family has taken the potential exposure seriously and is following all state protocols," Newsom’s Communications Director Nathan Click told Politico. “After being alerted by the school that a classmate tested positive for COVID-19, the potentially exposed Newsom child began a 14-day quarantine from the date of exposure in accordance with state public health guidance for schools. The Newsom child was tested twice [5 days and 7 days past their last contact with the COVID-19 positive student]. In addition, each of the Newsom children were also tested on Day 5.”

The news comes after the governor faced backlash for attending a dinner party for one of his long-time aides, breaking coronavirus guidelines.
