Yesterday California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an order placing the California National Guard on alert.

In a statement issued yesterday, Newsom ordered the National Guard to be prepared to "perform humanitarian missions across the state including food distribution, ensuring resiliency of supply lines, as well as supporting public safety as required."

 “As Californians make sacrifices over the coming weeks and stay home, we are immensely grateful for medical providers, first-responders and National Guard personnel who are assisting those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19,” Newsom said.

The announcement is made in the Governor's state constitutional as the Commander-in-Chief of the California National Guard, is consistent with duties routinely performed by the California National Guard during natural disasters and other emergencies within the state.
