TRANSCRIPT:

 

DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello, my name is Jim Brune,  I will be interpreting the October 12, 2020 press conference with California Governor Newsom (and Dr. Mark Ghaly). This press conference has four main topics: COVID-19 update, wildfires, three-housing rule, and ongoing reminders.

 

[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.]

[IMAGE DESCRIPTIONS: [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.]

[WHITE TEXT: COVID-19 UPDATE]

[WHITE TEXT: 3,449 POSITIVE WITH COVID-19, 2,196 Hospitalized, 604 in ICU

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: I want to share with you the current COVID-19 positive cases from yesterday, Sunday, October 11, 2020.  The total number of positive cases is 3,449.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A sick man wearing a blue mask lies in a hospital bed. A doctor with latex gloves is using a stethoscope to check the man’s heartbeat.]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: The total number of people who have gone in the hospital with COVID-19 is 2,196.  The total number of people who have gone in ICU with COVID-19 is 604.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A sick person with a fever exhales the coronavirus. Two other people catch it and also exhale the coronavirus. Arrows show that the coronavirus is spread though contact tracing]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Next, we want to talk about contact tracing.  That is the system in which we investigate how people got COVID-19.  How did they get COVID-19?  Who did they have contact with?  What are their names?  Where did they meet them? What is their contact information?  When we have this information we can keep track of where the virus has been.  The goal is to keep track of the people who might have been exposed to coronavirus.  With positive cases going up, that means we need more contact tracers making phone calls.  We have been working on training more people.  We have so far trained 10,892 people on the how to make calls for contact tracing.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Several speech bubbles are filled in with various flags from all across the world, indicating multilingualism, or the ability to speak more than one language.]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: The neat thing about the training that has been done is that out that 10,892 people, 1,800 are fluent in not just English, other languages too.  Before there was a long waiting period between testing positive and getting a phone call from a contact tracer.  With more people trained, the waiting time is much shorter.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A sick emoji face is quarantined inside a locked house and four coronavirus cells.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: California is committed to providing resources for those who have to quarantine because of being COVID-19 positive.  If a person is quarantined that means they can’t go to work, can’t earn money.   We have many different programs to support them.  One is job-protected sick leave.  Another is Housing for Harvest – a program to provide housing for agricultural workers and farm workers.  Another program is Project Roomkey which provides housing for  people who have COVID-19 or are in a high-risk population.  We’ve been working hard to provide programs and support for the community.  These services are made possible because of people and companies giving a lot of donations.

 

[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.]

 

[WHITE TEXT NEXT TO EACH COLOR BAR: purple = 16 counties; red = 24 counties, orange: 11 counties, yellow = 7 counties]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: California has set up a 4-color tier system:  purple, red, orange, and yellow.  Purple means that COVID-19 cases are high and hospital beds are full.  Red means less with some businesses open. Orange is even lesser with more businesses are opening.  Yellow means numbers are stable (not going up) and more businesses are open.  You can see the chart with numbers of counties in each color code category.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A huge red-orange wildfire rages behind green trees. Two firefighters use a firehose to spray water on the greenery.]

[WHITE TEXT: WILDFIRE UPDATES

WHITE TEXT: 4,100,000 acres, 12,000 firefighters, 31 deaths]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Now an update on the wildfires in California.  Our fires have been the largest in history burning over 4.1 million acres! We are now having 14 major fire complexes with over 14,000 firefighters working hard to control these fires.  31 people have died because of the fires.  Look at the screen to see how many fires, locations and  how much they have been contained.  Take a look.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A firefighter uses a firehose to spray a flame, which represents the Glass Fire containment. The flame is 96% white with a little bit of yellow at the bottom.]

[WHITE TEXT: Glass Fire 96].

[WHITE TEXT: August Fire 76%]

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A firefighter uses a firehose to spray a flame, which represents the Creek Fire containment. The flame is 55% white with red, orange and yellow at the bottom half.]

[WHITE TEXT: Creek Fire 55%]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: We noticed this week it is more windy and more hot.  That is not good for our fires.  Now about socializing, we set up a new policy this past Tuesday.  This rule is about three households gathering together.  We know that holidays are coming soon including Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, and more. This means that family and friends want to get together.  We are now dealing with COVID-19 and the flu. We don’t want to see numbers go up.  At the same time don’t want to tell you that you can NOT get together so we set up a new rule. Now we will allow people who live in three different houses can get together. Still must meet outside (not inside).  Follow the same rules of having a mask, keep separate, not sit too close to each other, keep your hands clean by washing often.  Be careful.  Keep a list of who is gathering together so that you remember who was there on a specific date.  That is the rule right now, it might change in the future.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White Rectangle with four rows of images and text.  Top row is an image of hands with soap next to orange text: Wash.  Second row is a head with a blue mask next to blue text: Cover. Third row is an outline of a blue spray bottle next to orange text: Clean. Fourth row is a woman with long hair in blue clothes with a light blue arrow next to her next to blue text: 6 Feet.]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Lastly, a reminder to continue to follow recommendations to slow the spread by wearing a mask, keep 6 feet apart, wash your hands, and do not socialize in large crowds.  Thank you!
