California Medical Association officials attended French Laundry dinner party with Gavin Newsom

California Medical Association officials attended French Laundry dinner party with Gavin Newsom”

The governor admitted, however, that he should not have attended the dinner, which included a gathering of more than three households, which goes against his state's Covid-19 restrictions in place.

CEO Dustin Corcoran and top CMA lobbyist Janus Norman joined Newsom and others at the dinner hosted at French Laundry restaurant earlier this month, where attendees of a birthday party for adviser Jason Kinney were seated closely without face masks.

CMA spokesperson Anthony Clark defended the dinner and the health officials' attendance, reiterating that it was held "in accordance with state and county guidelines". While Newsom and Kinney's lobbying firm have said the meal abided by public health rules, it has struck a chord with Californians who have assailed the upscale soiree as hypocritical as coronavirus cases surge. Bretan said he had no comment and referred questions to the association's staff, who did not respond to numerous calls and emails until Wednesday morning, when York provided the two-sentence statement.

Immediate action will help protect individuals at higher risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 and will help keep the state's health care delivery system from becoming overwhelmed, officials said.

Health officials being in attendance at the event has sparked equal outrage. "It got louder and louder and so they had some sliding glass doors that they were able to close, so then it was a closed-off room but you could still hear them with how loud they were".

Bibbins-Domingo, the UCSF epidemiologist, said she hopes people will look at the dinner party as a warning shot rather than a permit to party.

The state has issued guidelines prohibiting more than three households from gathering privately - a limit clearly exceeded by the French Laundry dinner. "Now is the time to do all we can to flatten the curve again, as we have done before".
