"We have been anticipating the potential for such a case in the USA, and given our close familial, social and business relationships with China, it is not unexpected that the first case in the USA would be in California", says Sonia Angell, the director of the California Department of Public Health, in a statement.
Later Friday health officials in OR reported diagnosing a case of Covid-19 - the disease the virus causes - in a person from Washington County who had neither a history of travel to a country where the virus was circulating nor close contact with a confirmed case.
"We knew this was inevitable, as it relates to the nature, the epidemiology, of these viruses, that that incident would occur", Newsom said, referring to the case.
"This new case indicates that there is evidence of community transmission but the extent is still not clear", Dr. Sara Cody, health officer for the county, said in a statement.
The woman had been hospitalized for a respiratory illness and her infectious disease doctor on Wednesday requested a coronavirus test.
Health officials are working to identify individuals the woman came in contact with who she could have spread the virus to while she was contagious.
Testing had previously been limited to people who had recently arrived back to the US from China or had come into close contact of people who had already been diagnosed.
Cody said individuals need to start practicing good hand hygiene and learn to stop touching their faces - people can infect themselves if they pick up viruses off a contaminated surface, then put a finger in their mouth or rub their eyes or nose.

There are 62 other confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The bulk of the cases, 47, are people who were evacuated from China or from the Diamond Princess Cruise ship. "There have been a limited number of confirmed cases to date". "In other words, the virus is spreading within California, and I think there's a possibility other states are in the same boat". Numerous workers at both hospitals have been tested, but the tests were sent to labs approved by the CDC and generally take three to four days to complete.
The virus can cause fever, coughing, wheezing and pneumonia.
The discovery of a second case "supports what we are trying to do with basic infection and case identification", said Saskia Popescu, senior infection prevention epidemiologist for Honor Health, a hospital system in Phoenix. "They just haven't recognized that yet".
