Newsom Issues Executive Order on COVID-19 Pandemic Response

Governor Gavin Newsom on Wednesday issued Executive Order N-1-22 to protect residents against increasing COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations largely driven by the COVID-19 omicron variant. The order extends the sunset of AB 361 that the Governor signed in September to extend flexibilities provided in a prior executive order enabling public agencies to meet remotely during the pandemic emergency.

Under the issued order, state bodies are permitted to continue holding public meetings via teleconference through March 31, 2022.
