California
Gov. Gavin Newsom said Thursday the state is currently monitoring at least
8,400 people for COVID-19, a day after health officials confirmed the first
possible community transmission of the coronavirus in a Solano County
resident.  “This is a fluid situation right now and I want to emphaize the
risk to the American public remains low,” said Dr. Sonia Y. Angell,
California Department of Public Health Director and State Health Officer during
a press conference. “There have been a limited number of confirmed cases
to date.”  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn’t know
exactly how the new California patient, who’s receiving medical care in
Sacramento County, contracted the virus. The patient didn’t have a relevant
travel history or exposure to another patient with the virus, the CDC said
Wednesday. California health officials said the patient wasn’t under quarantine
before her diagnosis and was out and about in her community.
