Newsom was one of many first U.S. governors to order shelter-in-place guidelines and promote social-distancing on a statewide scale, and since then he has been praised for taking early motion in stopping the unfold of the virus.
When requested if he discovered it troublesome to enact quarantine orders so quickly, Newsom acknowledged the challenges of addressing the disaster when nobody was certain how the general public would reply to such a sudden, drastic life-style change — to not point out a tanking financial system.
“Certainly people thought it was too much, too soon, too fast,” he stated. “But I think ultimately it’s helped advance our efforts to, as I said, bend this curve. And what I mean by that is nothing more than this: we had models showing the massive increase in the total number of infections. But because of 40 million Californians taking these directives very, very seriously — staying at home and practicing social distancing, physical distancing, when they went about their essential work or going grocery shopping or getting medical supplies — we have substantially impacted that curve and put ourselves in a position where just today, I was able to put out a framework to begin the process of considering a strategy to pull back from the stay-at-home order.”
Later on the present, OneRepublic did a distant efficiency of their track “Better Days,” from their upcoming album Human, at their house studio.
