From the Governor's Office:
Today, 3/30, Governor Newsom issued an executive order to address the unprecedented need for additional health care professionals. In his order, the governor temporarily expands the health care workforce, allowing health care facilities to staff at least an additional 50,000 hospital beds the state needs to treat COVID-19; and allows the Director of the State Department of Public Health the ability to waive various statutes and regulations that would prevent, hinder, or delay appropriate actions to prevent and mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
