Two of California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Children Test Positive for Coronavirus

Two of California Gov. Gavin Newsom‘s children have tested positive for COVID-19, the office of the governor tells PEOPLE.

“Yesterday, two of the Governor’s children tested positive for COVID-19,” spokesperson Erin Mellon says in a statement.

Newsom, his wife Jennifer, and their other two kids have since tested negative, Mellon’s statement says. “The family is following all COVID protocols.”

“The Newsoms continue to support masking for unvaccinated individuals indoors to stop the spread and advocate for vaccinations as the most effective way to end this pandemic.”

The governor’s office did not say which of Newsom’s children had tested positive. His four kids range in age from 5 to 12.

The news of his children contracting coronavirus came just two days after Newsom received an overwhelming victory in his recall election.

After weeks of mail-in voting, months of campaigning and a Republican-led push to oust him dating back to 2019, Election Day arrived Tuesday and Newsom emerged the winner with the support of a huge majority.
