TRANSCRIPT:

DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello, my name is Jim Brune, interpreting key points from Governor Newsom’s Press Conference from today, Monday, October 5, 2020.

[bottom corner] WHITE TEXT: This video made possible with the support of: below White text is the GLAD logo in green/blue.

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: We will cover four key topics today: wildfires, COVID-19 updates, nomination for Supreme Court, and the upcoming elections.  Start with update on the wildfires, we are having the worst wildfire season in the history of California.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of a mountainside with tall trees with a bright orange red trail of flames going up the mountain]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: We now have 23 active fires in California with 4 million acres burned and 31 people have died from these fires.  Our hearts are with them.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of two firefighters in full yellow gear standing next to a tall tree on a ground covered with dry leaves with tall orange flames in front of them.  They are holding a long yellow hose, spraying fire on the flames.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: We have 16,600 firefighters working on controlling the fires. Will show updates about the six active fires in California with how much contained and how much land has been burned.

[WHITE TEXT ON DARK GRAY BACKGROUND: Glass Fire (Sonoma, Napa Counties). Today:  30% contained, 65 acres. Zogg Fire (Redding). Now;  76% contained, 56K acres. August Fire (Glenn, Lake, Mendo, Tehama, and Trinity Counties – first started as 38 fires and started by lightning on 8/16-17). Now:  54% contained, 1M acres. This is the largest fire in State history. North Complex Fire (Plumas, Lassen). Now:  83% contained, 318K acres. Creek Fire (Fresno, Madera):. Now:  48% contained, 322k acres. Bobcat Fire (LA County). Now:  88% contained, 115K acres.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Our next topic is an update on COVID-19.  We see more people with COVID-19 in other countries and in America such as England, France, and Israel.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: close up of a world map focused on countries in Europe and Middle East. Each country is a different color.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: We are seeing number of COVID-19 cases in California stay the same level but we need to be very careful because the flu season is coming and the numbers could go way up.  We see that happening in other states already. Again, while numbers are staying at the same level in California, they don’t usually go to the hospital until 20 to 30 days later.  What this means is that people might have COVID-19 but may not feel sick until 2 to 3 weeks later when they decide they need to go to the hospital.  We still have to keep track of where they have been in that time for possible spread of the virus.  There have been 3,055 new COVID-19 positive cases.  In the last week we have given out 116,700 nose swab tests.  Hospitalization is down by 13% in the past two weeks.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Four rows of color bars. Top row is purple with images skull/bones (three) and stop sign with hand in middle (two). Second row is red with exclamation point (!) inside a triangle (two) and stop sign with hand in middle (one).  Third row is orange with thumbs up sign (two) and exclamation point (!) inside a triangle (one). Fourth row is yellow with happy face sign (two) and thumbs up (one)]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: The number of people going to the ICU with COVID-19 has gone down by 15% in the past two weeks.  Remember we have the new county color coding system with purple being most severe with a high number of COVID-19 positive cases will have less schools and businesses open, then red, to orange, to yellow which has a smaller number of COVID-19 cases and then can have more schools and businesses open.  The goal is to get to yellow.  Next I will show a list of counties in each color category: purple, red, orange, and yellow.

[WHITE TEXT ON DARK GRAY BACKGROUND: PURPLE 18 COUNTIES. RED 22 COUNTIES. ORANGE 15 COUNTIES. YELLOW 3 COUNTIES.

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Our third topic today, I am proud to nominate a person that I hope you will vote to become Supreme Court Justice for California, the highest court in our state, Martin Jenkins.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A Black/African Heritage male with a bald head, smiling with head resting on one hand, wearing a blue/white striped shirt, looking slightly away from the camera while sitting in front of a bookshelf filled with large books.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Martin Jenkins used to play pro football in the NFL then he studied to become a lawyer then later became a judge.  If he is voted in he will be 3rd Black/African Heritage man in the California Supreme Court.  AND if he is voted in, he will also be the first openly gay man in our state Supreme Court.  I  do hope that you will vote for Martin Jenkins for this seat.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: clip art of a box with white corners with large block letters VOTE with red lines above and below VOTE.  A white envelope is going into the open slot at the top of the VOTE box.  Behind the box is an abstract of a sky with light and medium shades of blue.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Our fourth topic is on elections. This year is our first time in history that everyone in California can vote by mail.  You can mail your voter ballot in. You don’t have to go to a polling place.  You can fill out the ballot at home and mail it in.  Please do that soon, fill it out, and mail it in.  If you are worried about what to do, if your mail might get lost, and your vote will not count, please don’t worry.  Each paper has a special number, each ballot received will be scanned and the number is only for you and your address. We can tell you where your ballot is, if we received it or not.

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White rectangle with clip art image at top hands with soap with orange text: Wash.  Second image down is a face with brown hair and blue mask with blue text: Mask.  Third image down is the outline of a blue spray bottle with orange text: Clean.  Fourth image at bottom is the image of a woman standing with long dark hair and blue clothes and a light blue arrow in front of her with blue text: 6 Feet]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: As a reminder, please wash your hands, wear your mask, don’t socialize in large crowds, don’t get too close to others, this is important to stay safe and to protect yourself, yoru families and your communities.   If you want schools and businesses to open again, if you want your county to move down to yellow, then you need to do the following: wear a mask, keep your distance by staying 6 feet apart, wash your hands, and don’t socialize.   Thank you.
