Governor Newsom Executive Order in Response to COVID-19
On March 18th, 2020 Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order to extend the eligibility period for important safety net services.
The order waives eligibility re-determinations for 90 days for Californians who participate in:
- Medi-Cal health coverage
- CalFresh food assistance
- Cash Assistance for Immigrants; and
- In-Home Supportive Services
The change will allow current recipients of these safety net programs to continue receiving them without interruption.
The Governor’s full executive order can be found at
