On Oct. 17, California governor Gavin Newsom announced that California’s Covid State of Emergency will end on Feb. 28. In general, a governor can declare a State of Emergency when they deem a situation to be dangerous enough that state aid is required to “supplement local resources in preventing or alleviating damages, loss, hardship, or suffering.” According to Cal Matters, California’s Covid State of Emergency was declared about three years ago and has been renewed five times throughout the pandemic. Now, Newsom believes that California has enough resources to survive the pandemic without the State of Emergency: “With the operational preparedness that we’ve built up and the measures that we’ll continue to employ moving forward, California is ready to phase out [the State of Emergency],” Newsom said, according to Cal Matters.
