Budget act 2020

On Monday, 6/29 Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a $202 billion budget which included emergency pandemic funding, expanded unemployment aid, and cuts across the board due to the coronavirus-caused recession.


The budget makes an effort to promote economic recovery and close the $54.3 billion budget shortfall caused by the COVID-19 recession.


The Budget dedicates $5.7 billion to public safety and health care in response to COVID-19. Expenditures will go to personal protective equipment (PPE), hospital surge preparation and other safeguards necessary to safely reopen the economy during COVID-19. The budget also includes $716 million for Gov. Newsom to use for emergency pandemic purposes.  Click here for details.


Practice Reopening

As the state moves into Stage 3 of the Governor's 4 Stage reopening plan, physicians need to prepare themselves for how this might impact their practices.  To assist physicians with reopening, OPSC has created a Practice Reopening resource page.  This page includes information from various sources to help physicians on which steps to take prior to reopening, financial and staffing considerations and universal safety precautions.
