Senator Bates’ Message
In the fight against COVID-19, we are all in this together.
The State of California is working with federal and local agencies to keep residents safe and help those in need during this unprecedented time. Given that this is a rapidly evolving situation, it is important to be calm and informed.
For my part, I am committed to ensuring that state and local agencies have the resources they need to stop the spread of COVID-19 and help those affected. I commend our health professionals and the many other workers on the front lines who are working to keep Californians safe.
For your part, please heed the latest guidance from public health officials.
