Los Angeles County Department of Public Health officials announced a revised travel advisory Monday following the release of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s revised guidelines last week.
While the updates continue to urge that everyone avoid non-essential travel, the new advisory no longer requires that travelers who are fully vaccinated get tested or quarantined upon their arrival in the county if they do not have any symptoms of illness.
Travelers who are not fully vaccinated are still advised to quarantine for seven full days after travel if they receive a negative COVID-19 test result taken three to five days after their arrival.
