State Extends SoCal Stay At Home Order Indefinitely; County Requires All Returning Travelers to Quarantine For 10 Days

The regional stay-at-home order in effect across Southern California due to surging COVID-19 hospitalizations was formally extended by Governor Newsom on Tuesday, Dec. 29, continuing a ban on all gatherings of people from different households and in-person dining, and setting strict capacity limits at many businesses. The state's regional order, which covers an 11-county Southern California area, took effect at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 6 and was set to expire Jan 4. The new order was not extended for any specific timeframe. These orders will likely remain in effect as long as hospital ICU capacity remains below the 15% threshold established by the State.

The orders prohibit gathering with non-household members, require everyone to stay at home as much as possible, reduce occupancy limits at businesses, and require masking and distancing whenever around others. Outdoor exercise is encouraged as long as you remain distanced and wear a face covering when around others. 

In Los Angeles County, the Department of Public Health issued new orders requiring all travelers to quarantine for 10 days upon return to the County. The Health Officer Orders also require that all non-essential business and activities cease between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. A complete list of the current safety modifications can be found online. These orders are in place for your safety and the safety of others – to reduce the potential for virus transmission.

The Reopening Protocols, COVID-19 Surveillance Interactive Dashboard, Roadmap to Recovery, Recovery Dashboard, and additional things you can do to protect yourself, your family and your community are on the Public Health website, publichealth.lacounty.gov.
