SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KRON) — Two of Governor Gavin Newsom’s children tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, according to the Governor’s Office spokesperson Erin Mellon.

The governor, his wife Jennifer and their other two children have since tested negative.

Newsom’s family is following COVID protocols, Mellon said.

The family continues to support masking for unvaccinated individuals indoor to stop the spread and advocate for vaccinations as the most effective way to end the pandemic.

All four of Newsom’s children are under the age of 12, meaning none of his children are able to get the vaccine yet.
