The editorial also accused Newsom of “caving” to the prison guard union, and concluded, “The governor should back his tough talk with actions that match his words.” “What’s keeping Newsom from requiring that staff members must be vaccinated by, say, Dec. 1, since the FDA has already cleared the vaccines for adults?” reads an editorial from Bay Area News Group. “Or students 16-and-older, for that matter, since they, too, have the FDA’s stamp of approval.”
The governor has also faced criticism for not mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for school staff in addition to children. Teachers unions were also large donors to Newsom’s anti-recall campaign. “We need to stiffen our spines and lean into keeping people safe and healthy,” he told CBS News after surviving the recall. “We shouldn’t be timid in trying to protect people’s lives and mitigate the spread and transmission of the disease.”
Because of the inconsistencies, Newsom has been lit up in recent weeks by normally friendly newspaper editorial boards. Newsom’s hostility towards the mandate for prison guards does not align with his previous statements on COVID mitigation efforts, including vaccine mandates.
