The state of California recommends that people do not gather in social settings with members of more than three households unless you’re so important that the rules don’t apply to you.
Okay, so the last bit isn’t in the rules, but it might as well be, at least as far as California Governor Gavin Newsom is concerned.
Newsom and his wife attended a dinner party of 12 in Napa Valley on Friday, November 6. People involved wouldn’t comment on how many households were represented, but they didn’t contest the notion that it was more than three.
Newsom defended his actions at first, claiming the group met outside and adhered to social distancing measures, but he can’t walk back the simple fact that he and his wife broke the guidelines.
It’s as if they think the rules only apply to other people.
