BREAKING: @GavinNewsom is set to announce that state employees and all health care workers (public + private employees) must be vaccinated or undergo weekly testing and wear masks.
"We are exhausted, respectfully, exhausted by the ideological prism too many Americans are living under" regarding "politicization of the vaccine and mask wearing," @GavinNewsom says.
"You don't have the choice to go out and drink and drive and put everyone else at risk," @GavinNewsom says. "That's the equivalent, at this moment, with the deadliness of this Delta variant."
