“We bent the curve in the state of California once,” Newsom said. “We will bend the curve again. Mark my words. We will crush this pandemic. We will annihilate it. We will get past this. But we are going to have to be tougher.”
Newsom said the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) will also play a role in the state’s enforcement of health rules.
“There are financial conditions, there’s regulatory oversight, there’s code oversight, all of those things are part of our overall efforts,” Newsom said. “OSHA is now very active in this space. Alcohol Beverage Control is very active in this space and just moments ago, we’ll be making a more formal and detailed announcement on enforcement tomorrow.”
