Governor Gavin Newsom reportedly ignored own COVID guidelines at birthday party

California Gov. Gavin Newsom reportedly violated his state’s COVID-19 guidelines by going to a birthday party in Napa with more than three households in attendance.

The Chronicle reported that Newsom and his wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom attended longtime adviser Jason Kinney’s 50th birthday party at French Laundry in Yountville (Napa County) on Nov. 6, and there were over 12 guests in attendance.

The state guidelines for social gatherings reads, “Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited. This includes everyone present, including hosts and guests. Remember, the smaller the number of people, the safer.”

According to The Chronicle, representatives for Newsom and Kinney “did not dispute” there were “more than three” households in attendance. A Newsom spokesperson defended the party at the restaurant by stating it was held outdoors, and said the governor and his wife “followed public health guidelines and the restaurant’s health protocols.”
