California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced Thursday that 33 people in California have tested positive for coronavirus, with officials monitoring more than 8,400 people for the virus.
Newsom said during a press conference that five people who tested positive have since moved out of the state as officials deal with the spreading virus.
One of those people is from an unknown source, raising the concern that the virus is spreading among the general public for the first time in the U.S.
“We knew this was inevitable,” Newsom said.
The governor said those being monitored for the virus are in 49 local jurisdictions in the state.
