Dear Senate District 12,
Over the past week, life around the state of California, the United States, and the World changed drastically because of the coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19. This webpage provides you with information regarding how to protect yourself and your family during the pandemic, how to access state and local government services, and other useful information during these challenging times.
Currently, the entire state of California is subject to shelter in place orders from Governor Newsom. Californians need to understand that what we do now, as citizens, as communities, directly impact the extent to which COVID-19 spreads through our communities.
Most importantly, we must stay informed and follow instructions from the California Department of Public Health, in terms of sanitizing, disinfecting, social distancing, and strategies to suppress the rate at which COVID-19 spreads. If we all act together, in each other’s common interest, California will succeed!
The California Legislature voted to appropriate $1.1 billion in immediate emergency aid to help our workers, the healthcare system, and the state economy to bear the costs that are coming from this pandemic. While the Legislature voted to enter into recess, so that we can return to our local communities and families, and participate in protecting the local Sacramento community by closing our physical office space to the public, please know that my Capitol and District staff are available by phone or email to assist you: office staff contact and numbers here.
