DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello. I’m Rosemary and this video is a summary of key points from Governor Newsom and Dr. Ghaly’s press conferences from November 19th and November 23rd, 2020.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Coronavirus cell is a gray sphere with orange dots and red stems protruding all around it.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Wow. In California the number of COVID-19 cases is really going up fast now.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A red arrow curving dramatically upwards along with a blue bar graph, indicating increasing numbers. On each bar is a clipart of a man coughing. Coronavirus cells and the coughing man get bigger and bigger as the graph rises.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Cases were going down but now they are going up in the United States and in California. It was going down before but it’s going up fast now. The Governor and Dr. Ghaly are worried and thinking about what to do.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Four rows of color bars. The top row is purple with images of skull bones and open hands gesturing “stop”. The second row is red with exclamation points (!) and open hands gesturing “stop”. The third row is orange with thumbs up signs exclamation points. The fourth row is yellow with happy faces and thumbs up signs.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Remember there are four tiers (levels) in California. The most serious is purple, then red, then orange, then yellow is the least serious.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION:  The state of California with each of its 58 counties assigned a color. Most of the counties are purple. Some are red, fewer orange and even less yellow counties.]

[WHITE TEXT: 18 years old to 49 years old]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY:  Who is getting COVID-19 in California the most now? People from 18 years old to 49 years old. They are really spreading COVID-19 in California now. Please be careful. The two counties with the highest spread of COVID-19 are Los Angeles County and Madera County.

 [IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A pale yellow map of California with Madera and Los Angeles counties in red.

 [IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A clipart of a grey hospital building with the iconic red cross symbol. An ambulance is parked in front along with a doctor, nurse, surgeon and a person in a wheelchair.]

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: An overcrowded hospital room. There is a sick person in each bed and some of the beds have plastic around it. Nurses in full protective gear are walking around and tending to the patients.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Remember that more people getting COVID-19 means that there are more people who need hospital beds. This means that if more and more people get COVID-19, hospitals will become full. There will not be enough beds for everyone. Hospitals will need to tell sick people, “I’m sorry but there are no beds for you. You can’t get help from doctors here.” Intensive care units (ICUs) will also be full. ICUs are important for very very sick people who need more attention from doctors and nurses.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Governor Gavin Newsom is a white man with slicked back grey hair. He is wearing a black suit with a light blue shirt and a dark blue tie. He is speaking and gesturing with his hand. He is standing in front of three flags and from left to right, they are the American flag, California state flag and California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) flag.]

[next to Governor Newsom] [IMAGE DESCRIPTION: [top corner] Picture of Dr. Mark Ghaly, is a white bald-headed man with transparent glasses. He is standing in front of a tree and is smiling at the camera. Dr. Ghaly is wearing a grey suit, white shirt, and a red and grey tie.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: If hospitals become full, California is ready to add about 2,000 more beds in California at different hospitals. They will add some beds to different hospitals in different places.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A person in full personal protective equipment (PPE) gear. They are fully covered from head to toe in blue, except the eyes are covered by clear goggles and the hands by transparent latex. Surrounding the person are various symbols of the gear involved in PPE. Symbols include a head cover, face shield, goggles, mask, gloves, shoe covers, and a zip up clothes cover.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: California has already bought millions of different kinds of masks, gloves, face shields, and paper gowns for nurses and doctors to help protect them from getting sick. California will keep buying more and giving hospitals more supplies.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Two rows of color bars. The top row is purple with images of skull bones and open hands gesturing “stop”. The second row is red with exclamation points (!) and open hands gesturing “stop”.]

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Four young women sit closely together and are hanging out. They are wearing masks and laughing.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Why are so many counties in California now in the purple tier?  It is becoming colder now and people don’t want to stay outside. People are also becoming bored and tired of staying home. People are going out, seeing other people, and being in crowds more and more now. People are going to other people’s houses more now. That means COVID-19 is spreading more because people are not staying home and avoiding other people as much as before. More and more places are opening up and that means COVID-19 is spreading more because more people are in the same place. More and more people are driving, flying, and taking the train to different places, and that helps COVID-19 spread to more people. That’s not good.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A man is not wearing his yellow mask with white stars on it correctly. The mask does not cover his nose. He is wearing it wrong]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: It’s very important to remember – MASK ON all the time. If you take it on and off to eat or to drink, it is easy for COVID-19 to stick to your face, nose, and mouth. You will then spread COVID-19 to other people. Please don’t do that. It is very important for your mask to stay on and cover your nose and mouth all the time. KEEP your mask on over your nose and mouth.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A woman with her hair pulled back and glasses is wearing her red mask with white spots the right way. The mask fully covers her nose, mouth and chin.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: If you feel healthy and you don’t have a fever, you don’t have a cough, and you don’t have problems breathing, it doesn’t matter. Keep your mask on all the time. Leave it on. If you don’t leave it on, it’s very easy to spread COVID-19 to other people.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A group of friends and a dog sit at their assigned place on a giant yellow circle in the grass. The circle is 6 feet wide, ensuring 6 feet of distance between each person.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Please remember that it is better not to see too many different people. California suggests that you only get together with people in your own home. It is okay to see people from a second and a third home, but it’s better not to if you want to avoid getting sick. Please don’t see people in fourth, fifth, or more homes. Please don’t mix with many different friends from different homes. If you do go ahead and get together with people from another home, please stay six feet away from each other. Don’t sit next to each other and breathe on each other. Don’t sit next to each other and play games or chat. Don’t go outside and play football or wrestling with each other. Stay six feet away from each other. Don’t sit close together during break time at work because that will spread germs.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: People sitting at tables outside some are wearing masks and some are not.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY:If you stay in the same room with other people for a long time, it helps COVID-19 spread to you and other people. Don’t stay in a room with doors and windows closed without moving air. Open the windows and open the door to help the air move inside.

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: The number of people with COVID-19 is going up and increasing. How do we get that number down again? Masks. California says you must wear masks all the time outside of your home. It is important to stay away from other people who don’t live with you. Don’t stay out for a long time. Just go out, do what you need to do, then go home fast. Make sure you have fresh air by opening doors and windows. You can choose to make an agreement with people who live in two other homes that you will see each other sometimes but it is important to not see anyone else. Just those three homes and no one else. No fourth home, fifth, home, sixth home. Now is not the time to do that. COVID-19 spreads so easily that you need to avoid people to stay safe and keep other people safe from becoming sick.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION:  A large group of friends and family pose in front of a thanksgiving feast. Nobody is wearing a mask. A big red “not allowed” symbol is on top of the people.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Thanksgiving is this week and you may want to get together with your family from different homes, eat, chat, and stay together for a long time and have fun. That makes sense. But please don’t do that. That is a really, really bad idea. We know you want to see your family, get together, watch football, and all that. It needs to be for a short time then go home. It is better for everyone to stay home. You could cook some food then drop it off at someone’s home then leave. That is fine. That way more people can share food and enjoy it. Please remember to be careful of people who are 65 years old and older and people who get sick easily. Please think of their safety and keep them safe.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The state of California with all of the counties in the purple tier. Any county not in the purple tier are not shown in this graphic.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: California now has many counties in the purple tier. Counties in the purple tier need to follow some strict rules. You need to stay home between 10 pm and 5 am. That rule will stay until December 21st. If you don’t have enough food between 10 pm and 5 am and you need it now, you can go for a short time and get food. If your dog needs to go to the bathroom outside, it is fine to go for a very short walk. It is OK to order food for take out if you are hungry, but go home right away with your food to eat at home. Don’t go out and have fun between 10 pm and 5 am. If you and other people stay home between 10 pm and 5 am, we will have less sick people in California.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A clock with 10-5 highlighted in red. On top of the red is a moon and star.]

[below clock] [IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A calendar image of the date December 21]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: We are looking forward to vaccines. Vaccines are important. There are two vaccines that the government has accepted and there will be a third vaccine that the government will probably accept soon. California is having different meetings to decide the best way to make sure people get vaccinated safely. They will share more information on December 1st.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A gloved hand injecting a vaccine into a patient’s arm.]

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Pfizer logo is a blue circle with “Pfizer” in white font.]

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Moderna logo is red font “moderna” with blue dash lines underlined.]

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The AstraZeneca  logo is purple font “AstraZeneca” with yellow squiggly lines to the right of it.]

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A calendar image of the date December 1]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: Remember they will not give the vaccine to everyone at the same time. There will be groups who get it first, second, third, and so on. The first group will be people who work in hospitals, nursing homes, and group homes. The next group will be ambulance workers, firemen, police, and so on. The third group will be senior citizens and people who get sick easily then people who work with other people like in a bank, in stores, teachers, etc. Then everyone who is left can get a vaccine. If you want COVID-19 to be less of a problem, what can you do? Wear a mask, stay home, wash your hands, stay away from other people.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A woman with her hair pulled back and glasses is wearing her red mask the right way. The mask fully covers her nose, mouth and chin.] ]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY: If you travel, like driving or flying somewhere far away, you need to stay in one place and not see people for 14 days/2 weeks. After 14 days, if you do not have COVID-19 you can go out carefully. When you go home, you still need to stay home for 14 days/2 weeks.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A calendar month with two weeks circled in red marker. Inside the circle is a woman on her laptop with a plant besides her sitting inside the outline of a house.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM/DR. GHALY:Please be careful. Wear masks. Wash your hands. Stay away from other people. Don’t be with people in a crowd. Don’t get together with friends. With all of these and when we have vaccines, there will be less people sick with COVID-19, then we can relax and not be as careful. Thank you.
