TRANSCRIPT:

 

DEAF INTERPRETER: Here is a brief summary of questions and answers with the Governor with some closing comments at the end.

 

Q= QUESTION/ A=ANSWER

 

Q: Question about schools: people who have a lot of money can afford the internet, computers, and what is needed for online education while people who do not have a lot of money can’t afford these things.  That means students who have less money will not get the same quality education as students who have more money.  What are you going to do about that?

A: We are aware that is a concern. We are working on educational resources as well as different companies in California to donate money and equipment as much as possible.  We know that doesn’t solve all the issues, we are working on it.  We also know that we need to give more support for students who need accommodations for example interpreter, large text display, students with ADD/ADHD, or various mental health challenges. We are looking for resources and including several specialists to make sure that we address these concerns.

 

Q: Why is it taking so long to get results from COVID-19 testing?

A:  Before there were a few thousand people taking the COVID-19 test, and now we have 100,000+ taking the test everyday.  So our labs are overwhelmed, our testers are overwhelmed, that is why it is taking a long time. We are working on contracting with more labs so that results are given in 1-2 days.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture, close up President Donald Trump wearing a black mask with a black jacket, white-collar shirt, and a blue tie.

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: As you saw on the news President Trump is wearing a mask and some people are upset about his commitment to wearing a mask or not.  I want to remind you that there are three things you can do to slow the spread.  Wear a Mask.  Wash your hands.  Stay 6 feet apart.  Thank you.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Three images after the other: clip art of blue head with white face mask, the image on a black rectangle on right is two hands with soap, the middle is a stopwatch, and right is the text: 20 seconds; an image of two people standing apart looking in opposite directions with a white two-way arrow between showing distance apart.
