Fourth night of Hanukkah

Hanukkah sameach!

Hello there and happy Monday! Are we exhausted yet?

Anyway, we have committee assignment for the 2021-22 legislative session. There are no big suprrises in the leadership of committees other than that I previously wrote about with Adam Gray (D-Merced) losing the juice committee, Assembly GO. Assembly member Jim Frazier (D-Vallejo) takes the helm. All the chairs are Democrats. Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) and Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) keep the all-important Budget and Approps committees, respectively.

I'll try to update the committee membership on the ATC site this afternoon.

...COVID-19 after the jump

COVID-19: Yesterday, 119 deaths were reported in the state, bringing the total to 20,976. Of course, the usual weekend reporting of lower numbers must be considered.

-Tiers for fears: There were no changes to the tiers yesterday.

  • Purple/Widespread=54 counties
  • Red/Substantial=3 (Alpine, Inyo, Mariposa -- total DOF est. population: 37,793)
  • Orange/Moderate=1 (Sierra -- total DOF est. population: 3,201)

-Stay at home: I am not including all of the main points and restrictions of the new stay at home order. You can find them in The Nooner for December 5, or read the state order or state guidance.

I missed it yesterday, but Sonoma County proactively adopted the state's stay-at-home order effective at 12:01 this morning, leaving only San Mateo, Santa Cruz, and Solano of the nine Bay Area region counties to not have such an order. Of course, it may be moot given the region's ICU capacity. Monterey's takes effect 10pm Sunday.
