Gov. Newsom in quarantine after exposure to staffer who tested positive for COVID-19


Gov. Gavin Newsom is in quarantine again after being exposed to a staff member who later tested positive for COVID-19.

The governor himself has tested negative, as did others on his staff. He'll be in quarantine for 10 days, consistent with current state guidelines. It's not clear when he was exposed, who else was exposed or how many others in the governor's office have entered quarantine, if any.

Gov. Newsom will be tested again in a few days.

Last month, the governor quarantined for 14 days after he and his family tested negative following his kids' exposure to a California Highway Patrol officer positive with the virus. State guidelines have since been updated to reflect a shorter 10-day quarantine window.

Others in the governor's office have previously tested positive.
