We the undersigned call on Governor Newsom pursue a strong, just, and science based response to the pandemic, which is now spiraling out of control. We opened up too soon and now we have to go back and do what every country which has successfully reduced COVID cases has done – shelter in place, robust contact tracing, widespread testing, and PPE for health care workers. The countries which have done this have been able to return safely to work and social life. We can do the same.

We also need programs to ameliorate the inequitable impacts of both the pandemic and economic contraction – extended unemployment benefits, eviction moratoriums, strong workplace COVID protections for essential workers and more. It is completely unacceptable that communities of color have much higher rates of disease because of lack of adequate testing in their neighborhoods, and that they are much more likely to be essential workers.

In the debates about California’s pandemic response, the voices of the vast majority of the population who support strong and equitable, science-based measures to address the pandemic, have not been heard.  Californians are willing to sacrifice for the common good because we are all in this together. For that to be happen we need leadership from the top committed to public health, equity, and shared sacrifice.
