CA Governor Newsom says state won’t return to normal until there’s a vaccine

On Tuesday, May 5, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order announcing that this Friday the state will move to Stage Two of his 4-stage COVID-19 “framework,” wherein reopening of “lower-risk businesses” and spaces will be allowed to reopen, to be followed by the reopening of higher-risk
businesses and spaces in Stage Three.

Even then, Newsom reserves the right of:

  1. The State Public Health Officer to revise the criteria and procedures of Stage Two “as she deems necessary to respond to the dynamic threat posed by COVID19”; and of
  2. County and local health officers “to establish and implement public health measures within their respective jurisdictions that are more restrictive than” the statewide Stage Two policy. As an example, Newsom’s Stage Two announcement conflicts with a more restrictive mandate issued Monday in six Bay Area counties (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara) which continues to prohibit most retail businesses, except for “essential” businesses such as grocery stores, from opening through May 31. Newsom said counties can keep their more strict guidelines in place and do not have to come into compliance with the state order: “We are not telling locals that feel it’s too soon, too fast to modify.”

SFGate reports that the “lower-risk businesses” that are allowed to reopen in Stage Two include bookstores, clothing shops, sporting goods stores and flower shops, provided that (a) their local officials give approval; and (b) the businesses make changes in their operations, such as having workers wear masks. Newsom will detail the new guidelines and requirements later this week.

Dine-in restaurants and offices will be part of a “later Stage 2 opening” –whatever that means.

More disturbing still is what Newsom said at a press briefing in Sacramento yesterday — California will not return to “normal” until there is immunity from the Wuhan virus SARS-CoV-2 via a vaccine. He said:

“We’re not going back to normal. It’s a new normal with adaptations and modifications, until we get to immunity and a vaccine.”

Readers’ comments on SFGate are mostly critical of Newsom. The best comment is this one from reader “gilgotha”:

Must…drag…it…out…until…November 4. Its just science… Political science

The problems with a vaccine are:

  1. Although a vaccine had been created by Moderna Therapeutics, a biotech company based in Cambridge, Mass., and the NIH is readying the vaccine for human testing, it could be 12 to 18 months at best before it’s ready for the public — which means California won’t return to normal until one to 1½ years from now, at best.
  2. The Wuhan coronavirus has already mutated into at least 30 different strains, which means whatever vaccine that is developed will not be 100% effective, just as the vaccine for the seasonal flu is, at best, only partially effective. As an example, the 2019-2020 seasonal flu vaccine is only 45% effective — “effective” defined as reduction in doctor’s visits for flu illness.
  3. According to a new survey, one-third of Americans say they won’t get vaccinated against the Wuhan virus even if/when a vaccine becomes available. (Daily Mail)

The “vaccine” is not really a vaccine, it’s called chloroquine (or hydroxychloroquine), azithromycin and zinc…that combo is the only vaccine I would consent to

When I first glanced at yesterday’s headlines, I thought JB Fatboy was going to make vaccines mandatory before “fully re-opening” Illinois for business. He hasn’t gotten to that point, yet.

I don’t see even Commiefornia being locked down for that long. People need to work; they need to pay their bills. The situation is UNSUSTAINABLE! Shoot, you have food banks with MILES LONG lines! What does that ell us? That many of our countrymen are going hungry. They say that there’s nothing more dangerous than a man with nothing left to lose. I’d amend that to say that there’s nothing more dangerous than MILLIONS with nothing left to lose. People, even in Commiefornia, are close to starvation. They’re close to losing their homes, the roof over their heads. An increasing… Read more »

The key is your assertion that “People need to work”. This goes against Liberal theology and politics, which is “People need to be on welfare”.
Some people think the Liberal religion is short sighted, however the majority in California, and indeed AMERICA (Hillary DID win the popular vote) are members of the cult.

You’re mostly right except for being sure Hillary won the popular vote. There were too many irregularities in the last election.

You’re right-as is typical with Liberals,she couldn’t have won even THAT were it not for the Democrats’ skill in VOTING FRAUD. Once President Trump is RE-elected,we need to throw in together to make terms like “Democrat”,”Liberal”,”Leftist”,”Socialist” and “Progressive” (The insurance co. by that name gets a pass.) SUPREME INSULTS,and make those who are members of those Cults unwelcome in ANY gathering or every-day conversation. (They’ve done that to US for a LOT of years,let’s see how THEY like it.) THEN,We lean on the President and the DOJ to begin handing out indictments ,investigating to the deepest depths,arresting and perp-walking them… Read more »

There will come a point where,Nationwide,people will go back to work REGARDLESS of what the “experts” say,because they’ll realize it’s either go back to work NOW or start referring to the United States of America as the United Socialist Republic of Amerika. THAT is something I refuse to accept.

A lot of these Democrat gubners must have a death wish…whether by hanging, “ventilation”, overdose on the vaccines they mandated & administered by many pissed-off Americans…I’ll gladly administer a vaccine to my gubner, and I won’t be the only one.

We had our last chance to do that in 2014. I honestly think it’s too late now. I don’t think there are enough patriots left there to successfully revolt. The whole state is going to have to collapse and rebuild from the ground up.

I agree 100% with the governor. The people of california should be protected from themselves. Unless of course they are illegals , or criminals, or homeless, or democratic voters ,, then they should have special rights and should be able to flaunt the laws. It is only fair. how else can we ensure that the mean spirited capitalistic, republican pigs pay there fair share. Power to the people,,, well,,, power to the people who we recognize as legitimate.

Sheer madness. Is it political power-craving? Is it primal fear? Is it over-thinking/over-protectiveness, to the point that the cure kills the host as handily as the disease would have anyway? Prior to Coronavirus, Mexifornia wasn’t fiscally sound due to huge # of entitlements thru’ last decades of Demorat reign. Does Newsom expect the Nebraskans, Texans, Floridians, et al…the ones who managed this plague well & are managing a cautious return to work….to fiscally support quaranteened Mexifornians? (Like they did for years when we could deduct our over-the-top state taxes from our Federal income taxes? These deductions allowed states that did… Read more »

The answer to your questions is YES. I heard today they’ve (The researchers of what demographic is MOST likely to spread the virus) discovered that the YUGE majority of people who have caught this so far got it WHILE SHELTERING AT HOME!! The LEAST likely are those who go out and walk,lounge in the sun,eat healthy and continue the 6 foot boogie.

Truck and Dr. E—-agreed—-even before the recent reports…..sunlight v mass sheltering in place of human mass infective is a NO BRAINER. In ALL of history…in all of infective nature….in all of recent data, shows that distancing/ open air is a sort of interruption in the chain of infection. (She said, tongue in cheek: You all can send me donations for ending this pandemic via FOTM :). ).

I think “Later Stage 2” would,by itself,make his “plan” a 5 Stage Plan. Either it’s a Stage 2 component or it’s not. I think he’s making the Stages up as he goes,much like Nevada’s alleged governor Sissypants,who even now doesn’t appear to have anything even resembling a Plan. Doesn’t especially matter to me-I’m with those who believe THEY know better than the Communists (WHO=NWO) and the back-east paper shufflers what’s best for us. Suicide? Maybe,but I call it FREEDOM.

Newsom is a tool of the oligarchs who swiftly want to implement the humanity-destroying policies of U.N. Agenda 2030. We should be careful to remember that the real plotters are lurking in the shadows.

Normally I would say the state won’t get back to normal until Newsome is thrown out, but this is CA we’re talking about. Normal is the last word I would use to describe that state.

A “corona-virus” is a common virus, the kind that gives you untold colds & miseries every “normal” year. IMHO, there will never be a “vaccine” for this, b/c there has never been a “vaccine” for the common cold. Period. IF “they” solve this present plague of corona-virus, they would be on the trail of solving the “cure” for the common cold, which they never have done, & likely will never do. NO MATTER what you are hearing in the news….this was an engineered virus that will kill the old and young(please look at recent news about this inflammatory disease for… Read more »

True. I did two ‘cold and flu studies’ when I was a lab rat for awhile. It was a taxpayer money pit, they had ran the study to find a “pill” to cure the common cold. It was a juicy grant that Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh got, I think it ran at least 20 years. As you can see, their 20 years of “research” did much to stop the cold virus.

I opine that Newsome MUST have his portrait painted a’la Dorian Gray…b/c it could be decades or a century b/f there is a vaccine for this…it is a corona-virus….in the order of the common cold and other viral maladies that we suffer every year…..sometimes thousands of us to die from the yearly outbreak of the “next” rendition of it….. the old and young….and then there’s next year……

What could he be thinking?
