MUSD, City continues to provide resources to support emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing


Milpitas, CA – May 9, 2020 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


On May 7, 2020, Governor Newsom announced upcoming changes to the statewide stay-at-home order, emphasizing that science, data, and public health will be used to determine safe reopening or relaxing of the order. Local conditions will take precedence over the statewide order, and more restrictive orders or guidelines by a city or county will need to be followed in that area. For more information please visit the State of California’s Resilience Roadmap <https://covid19.ca.gov/roadmap/> …  {local school board}



In California, the governor announced yesterday that the state budget has taken a horrendous hit.  He runs a big enough state that he already knows the Fed cannot help, and he knows he can’t keep the state closed.  He also knows he has taxation options the Fed doesn’t have (he can get the legislature to raise sales tax, income tax and gas tax as high as necessary (but not property tax (yaaay Prop 13!)))


The governor already knows that some counties and cities have told him to go to hell with his restrictions, and there just isn’t much he can do about it.  Some rural north California counties have already opened up everything except public schools.


This school board announcement makes it clear that the county and city governments make the final call.  Santa Clara county is taking a hardline stay-closed stance over state requirements announced yesterday.
