Newsom Deploys California National Guard To Assist With Coronavirus Pandemic

Governor Gavin Newsom announced Friday the deployment of the California National Guard to help distribute food amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The National Guard will distribute food at food banks and protect the most vulnerable populations in the state. Food banks have seen a shortage in volunteers due to COVID-19.

The announcement comes one day after Newsom issued a statewide stay-at-home order.

“It’s in these times of crisis that Californians are at their best, coming to the aid of those in their community who are most in need,” Newsom said. “I ask all Californians who are able to join our Neighbor-to-Neighbor campaign to safely assist those in need in your community.”
