SACRIAMENTO – As the number of Covid-19 cases continues to rise nationwide, Governor Gavin Newsome from California, Governor Kate Brown from Oregon and Governor Jay Inley from Washington today issued travel advisories urging people traveling outside the state or returning to quarantine to slow the spread of the virus. The travel advice calls for avoiding unnecessary travel outside the state, encourages people to quarantine themselves within 14 days of arrival from another state or country and encourages residents to remain seated.
California has just passed the disturbing threshold of one million cases of Covid 19 without any sign of the virus slowing down, California Governor Gavin Newsome said. The increase in the number of cases puts additional pressure on our hospital systems and threatens the lives of the elderly, key workers and vulnerable Californians. Travel increases the risk of VIDOC-19 spreading, and we all need to join forces now to keep the virus at bay and save lives.
In addition to encouraging people from other states or countries to quarantine themselves within 14 days of arrival, the travel consultant recommends that states limit their interaction with the nearest household. The recommendations define longer journeys as work and education, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health care, emergency medical assistance, and safety and security.
Covid-19 doesn’t stop at the state border. While Western hospitals are working to the limit, we need to make sure that travelers don’t bring the disease home, said Oregon Governor Kate Brown. If you don’t have to travel, you don’t have to travel. It’s gonna be hard, especially with a happy Thanksgiving around the corner. But the best way to protect a family is to stay close to home.
The number of COVID cases in Washington has doubled in the last two weeks. It puts our state in the same dangerous situation today as it was in March, Governor J. Inseley from Washington said. Restricting and reducing travel is one way of preventing the spread of the disease. I look forward to working with California and Oregon in this effort to protect life on the West Coast.
For more information about the risks of KOVID-19 itself, see the CDC page on travel risks.
The incidence of COVID-19 is increasing in many states and countries. People entering California from other states or Californians returning from other states or countries can increase the risk of VIDOC-19 spreading. In addition, the trip itself may involve the risk of contact with KOVID-19, especially if means of transport such as air, bus or train are used.
Travel advice for non-essential travel
1. Individuals coming from other states or countries, including returning California citizens, must quarantine themselves within 14 days of arrival. These persons must limit their communication to their immediate home. This Recommendation does not apply to persons crossing national or state borders in order to arrange travel.
2. Californians are encouraged to stay at home or in their region and avoid unnecessary travel to other states or countries. Avoiding travel can reduce the risk of virus transmission and return to California.
Non-core travel includes travel considered as tourist or leisure travel.
Key visits included employment and training, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health care, emergency medical care and occupational safety and health.
