(KTXL) — Gov. Gavin Newsom made his first public appearance Tuesday since canceling his trip to Scotland for the United Nations climate summit.
The governor spoke at the California Economic Summit to discuss the state of California’s economy as it works to recover from the pandemic.
Newsom hasn’t appeared in public since he received his COVID-19 booster shot from Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly in a live stream on Oct. 27. Two days later, his office announced he would not be going to COP26 due to “family obligations.”
When Newsom canceled his trip, his office said he would be attending events virtually, but he has yet to participate.
Since the announcement, the governor has submitted prerecorded remarks to a transit conference, the Associated Press reported. He also posted a Halloween photo of his family on Instagram and has been tweeting.
