(KMJ ) – Governor Gavin Newsom and his family are quarantining after three of his children were exposed to someone who tested positive for the corona virus.
A spokesperson for the Governor’s office says Newsom, his wife Jennifer, and their children all tested negative for the virus on Sunday. Newsom was notified Friday evening that a California Highway Patrol member who had contact with three of his children later tested positive for the virus.
And he put out a tweet stating: “Late Friday evening, @JenSiebelNewsom and I learned that 3 of our children had been exposed to an officer from the California Highway Patrol who had tested positive for COVID-19.”
The California Highway Patrol provides security for Newsom and his family. And, the family will continue to receive virus tests.
Friday, a spokesman for the Governor said one of his children may have been exposed to COVID-19 at school. That child began a 14-day quarantine “from the date of exposure” after the family was told a classmate at the private school had tested positive for COVID-19.
