I wanted to provide you all with an update on actions the State of California is taking to contain the spread of #COVID19:

Gov GavinNewsom has issued an executive order requiring the cancellation any gatherings of 250+ statewide. This supersedes local measures allowing larger gatherings.

In addition, Gov. Newsom’s executive order:

  • Waives the one-week waiting period for people who are unemployed and/or disabled as a result of #COVID19.
  • Delays the deadline for state tax filing by 60 days for individuals & businesses unable to file on time due to COVID-19.

The executive order also:

  • Allows local or state legislative bodies to hold meetings via teleconference and to make meetings accessible electronically
  • Allows local and state emergency administrators to act quickly to protect public health

In addition to the Governor’s executive order, CA Public Health has released updated guidelines for schools, colleges, and any hosts of large events. You can find those updates guidelines here.

We must all take appropriate precautions to keep our loved ones, coworkers and neighbors safe—especially those at highest risk—amid this unprecedented public health threat.

If you’re sick—please heed health officials’ calls to stay home.

Let’s all do our part to contain #COVID19 in CA.

Before being elected to the California State Assembly in 2018, Buffy worked as a community organizer, an advocate for kids, and a grassroots activist with experience at the local, state and federal level. She was born in a small town in rural California and grew up in a trailer, raised by working class parents who pushed her to work hard and think big.

Buffy is proud to have been an architect of President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. She is credited with innovating Obama’s grassroots organizing model – from right here in Oakland. In addition to playing a critical role in his momentous electoral victories, Buffy served alongside him in the White House. In her leadership role at the Office of Public Engagement, Buffy brought stakeholders and advocates from across the country together to support and eventually pass the Affordable Care Act, which has provided more than 20 million Americans with health care, including 5 million here in California.

Since arriving in Sacramento, Buffy has been a tireless advocate for working families across California, using her experience as an organizer and leader on policy to fight for and pass bills defending the rights and strengthen the livelihood of all her constituents.

Buffy lives in Oakland with her husband Peter and her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter Josephine, also known as JoJo.
