Quarantining After Traveling is REQUIRED.

Quarantine after traveling

Because of the likelihood of exposure to COVID-19 while traveling outside of L.A County, for everyone that traveled or are planning to travel back into L.A. County, you must quarantine for 10 days. If you start to experience any symptoms or have a positive test, isolate for 10 days and until you are fever-free for 24 hours. 

The best way to safely quarantine is to not leave your home or allow any visitors to your home, and to find others who can help you buy groceries and other essential necessities.  If you need help during your self-quarantine, such as finding assistance to help get groceries, there are resources available by calling 2-1-1 or visiting the Public Health website.
