SACRAMENTO, Cali. — Thursday afternoon, Gov. Newsom announced that a data-driven website, used by officials to make decisions, has been made available to the public.

Newsom says he wants to empower individuals through this collaboration. Making the site public opens the decision-making process to full transparency, leaning into certain decisions being challenged.

Newsom also notes that some individuals can be experts at certain subjects pertaining to the data found on the site and can possibly help in the tough decisions health officials and other officials often have to make.

"I want to empower local leadership to make informed decisions," said Newsom.

There are three parts to the website, all offering different resources geared to the same goal, bending the curve of COVID-19.
