Dear Faculty and Staff,
I am writing to provide an update regarding travel restrictions from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. With Spring Break approaching, we recognize that people are wondering about travel options during the vacation, particularly in light of the recent move to the Red Tier and the declining case rates in Los Angeles County.
LACDPH has made clear they are concerned that loosening travel restrictions now may result in a repeat of the COVID surge that occurred last November and December from holiday travel and gatherings. Even a moderate uptick in case rates could send us back to the Purple Tier. Consequently, there is no change to the current travel advisory, which recommends remaining local (within 120 miles of your residence). Anyone who leaves the State is required to quarantine for 10 days upon return, even if you’ve had a negative COVID test. This applies even if you have been fully vaccinated.
We are pleased with the progress that has been made that has allowed us to bring students and staff back to school. We expect to continue making progress and ultimately eradicate the spread of COVID 19. We are relying on everyone to continue being cautious and follow the recommendations from LACDPH.
Thank you for doing your part to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
