California Governor Gavin Newsom and his family are quarantined after being potentially exposed to the new coronavirus.
“Late Friday night @JenSiebelNewsom and I learned that 3 of our children were exposed to a California Highway Patrol officer whose COVID-19 test was positive,” Newsom tweeted early Monday.
“Jen and I had no direct contact with respect and wish them a speedy recovery,” he continued, adding, “Fortunately, the whole family has had a negative result today.”
“However, in accordance with local guidelines, we will be quarantined for 14 days,” Newsom said.

He added that “I am grateful for all the officers who keep our family safe and for all the front workers who continue to work during the pandemic”.
The governor’s tweets appeared after one of her children may have been exposed to COVID-19 at school after a coronavirus had a positive result from a classmate at a private school in Sacramento.
