Gov. Gavin Newsom removed his children from a summer camp after photos surfaced of his son attending the camp indoors maskless.
“The Newsoms were concerned to see unvaccinated children unmasked indoors at a camp their children began attending yesterday. Their kids will no longer be attending the camp,” the governor’s communications director, Erin Mellon, told Fox News in a statement Tuesday when asked about the photos.
California’s current guidance for children aged 2-11 states they must wear masks during “camps for youth, youth sports and other youth activities, including theater and music performances and band. Updated CDC guidance is forthcoming for youth settings.”
California officials announced July 9 that students and teachers returning to the classroom this year will also be required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.
“We’re going to start with a requirement K through 12 that the year begins with masks,” California Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly said at the time. “At the outset of the new year, students should be able to walk into school without worrying about whether they will feel different or singled out for being vaccinated or unvaccinated — treating all kids the same will support a calm and supportive school environment.”
The photos were removed from the summer camp’s Instagram account once Newsom’s son was identified, but there is plenty of screenshots and video out there. We have some.
The Instagram post occurs as Newsom pushes for increased vaccine rates if we ever want to be rid of masks.
