Update: Steve Padilla Has Been Hospitalized

Democrats for Equality,

Late yesterday, Steve Padilla’s daughter Ashleigh released a statement updating on his condition.

Unfortunately, Steve’s condition worsened and he was admitted to UCSD Thornton Hospital ICU.

Days ago he had announced on social media that he had tested positive for COVID-19.

Again, we want to offer any positive thoughts and send as many good vibes as we can to Steve, Ashleigh, and the rest of the Padilla family for a healthy recovery.

Steve is the first reported case among our local elected officials. Here is the updated statement from last night:

According to San Diego County officials, there are 105 confirmed cases as of yesterday.

You can check data monitored from the County on their website here.
We are all monitoring the day-to-day on the Coronavirus pandemic. If anything changes, we’ll be sure to let you know!

Again, please send positive thoughts, good vibes, and well-wishes to Steve and his family during this time.

Be safe and healthy,

Ryan Trabuco
Club President
