DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello, my name is Alexis Bravo and I will be interpreting the three main points Governor Newsom made today.

DEAF INTERPRETER: First, the  governor visited several locations that were impacted by the wildfire. He also met with local community leaders. They discussed how dry vegetation and wind can make a wildfire worse. Gusts of wind impact wildfires differently than exhaling and extinguishing a small flame on a match or birthday candles.

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: It is quite different!! Wildfires spread and become larger by wind. Firefighters come from all over and use water to contain the fire.

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: One of the places Governor Newsom visited was Fresno in central California. The discussion focused on the drought and lack of rain and how the drought is contributing, not only to the intensity of the fires, but also how quickly it grows in size. It is incredibly difficult to battle a fire like that. However, because the wind isn’t blowing as hard, the fire’s spread has slowed. We are using this to our advantage and working hard to gain control and ultimately beat the fire as soon as possible.  Discussions about forest management have been happening. We are discussing the possibility of forest management in unincorporated areas. Forest management means cutting down dead trees and minimizing tall, dead grass.

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Cleaning up these areas will help ensure the safety of structures and lives. More information regarding forest maintenance will be released at a later date.

 

[ID: top right white outline of box with white text in box. WHITE TEXT: COVID-19 Update.]

 

The second issue I wanted to discuss is coronavirus updates. I cannot tell you how excited and proud I am of all of you! You have done such a great job following the rules, like wearing masks, washing your hands and social distancing. Your actions influenced others to do the right thing. As a result, the spread of covid-19 has been decreasing! This pandemic is far from over but the progress we’ve made is a good thing. The number of sick people being admitted into the hospital is also decreasing.  In previous press conferences, I talked about our new color system with purple, red, orange and yellow. Purple being the worst color and yellow being the best.

IMAGE: Four different colors from the top to bottom – purple with stop signs and skulls icon, red with stop sign and warning signs icon, orange with a warning sign and thumb up icon, and yellow with smiley faces and thumb up icon. It shows the level of breakout based on the average of COVID-19 cases]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: More and more counties are getting out of purple and going down the list to red, orange and yellow

 

[ID: top right white outline of box with white text in box. WHITE TEXT: Marin, Inyo, Tehama]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: The more counties to get themselves on the yellow level, the more schools and businesses will be allowed to reopen. That is our goal! If too many counties refuse to wear masks and such, the more coronavirus will spread and that will put counties higher on the list, which is not a good thing. Schools and businesses will be forced to close. I realize that this is upsetting for many of you and my response to that is to follow the guidelines to beat the virus, and also to stay in the yellow and orange levels. Be sure to check your county’s progress and get more information.

 

[ID: top right white outline of box with white text in box. WHITE TEXT:Project Homekey]

 

[ID: Picture of a homeless person with black hat, wearing a brown leather jacket, gray and brown pants, red socks, holding the black shoes with their right hand on the ground, sit on the street, seem exhausted and sleep, and lean back against the building wall]

 

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Finally, I am thrilled to share that Project Home Key has been launched! The goal of this project is to place poor and homeless people into homes. We want to take people sleeping on the streets and moving them into safe places.  The reason for this is to minimize the spread of coronavirus. We want to give them safe places and protect everyone. The budget for this project is 1.6 billion dollars! This money will be spread out and given to hungry people without homes. If you are homeless, you can apply to receive the support of Project Home Key.  I want to thank the people involved in this. For far too long, we’ve turned a blind eye to the homeless pandemic, but no more.  Lastly, a reminder that this is an interpretation of Governor Newsom’s press conference.
