This morning as California enters its 629th day of a COVID state of emergency, Governor Newsom has left the state with his family for a trip to Mexico for Thanksgiving.

The Governor’s Office announced the trip on Monday hours after Newsom held a news conference at a vaccine clinic in San Francisco. Governor Newsom was widely criticized earlier this month for not disclosing his whereabouts for more than a week. Newsom had been scheduled to attend an international climate conference in Scotland, but he withdrew at the last minute, citing “family obligations.”

Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis is acting Governor while Newsom is out of the state. Newsom is scheduled to return to California on Sunday.
