Newsom Announces California will be the First State to Require All School Staff be Vaccinated Against Covid or Tested Weekly (VIDEO)
Embattled Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday announced California will be the first state to require ALL public school staff be fully vaccinated against Covid or submit a weekly test to state authorities.
“To give parents confidence that their children are safe as schools return to full, in-person learning, we are urging all school staff to get vaccinated. Vaccinations are how we will end this pandemic,” Newsom said.
“As a father, I look forward to the start of the school year and seeing all California kids back in the classroom,” he added.
The new policy goes into effect Thursday.

Wednesday’s announcement comes just one week after Newsom announced California will require healthcare workers to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 by September 30th.
Newsom has been hesitant to impose new lockdowns and mask mandates with his recall election looming, but he is starting to mandate vaccines for certain workers.
The recall election for Gavin Newsom is set for September 14, 2021.
