RECAP OF RECENT LA COUNTY AND CA STATE PUBLIC HEALTH ORDERS
LA COUNTY ORDERS
On December 17, the Los Angeles County Public Health Officer issued a revised Public Health Emergency Quarantine Order: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/docs/HOO/HOO_Coronavirus_Blanket_Quarantine.pdf and a revised Public Health Isolation Order: http://www.publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/docs/HOO/HOO_Coronavirus_Blanket_Isolation.pdf. More information and guidance on how to comply with these orders is available on the LA County Department Public Health’s website: http://www.publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus.
Additionally, any travelers returning to LA County, or travelers coming to LA County are required to self-quarantine for 10 days. This directive is in furtherance of the State’s Travel Advisory, which provides both that Californians stay home or in their Region and avoid non-essential travel and persons who arrive into any Region of California self-quarantine for 10 days after arrival. California, Oregon, and Washington have travel advisories requiring self-quarantine for anyone entering those states. http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/docs/protocols/Directive_Travel.pdf
STATE ISSUED REGIONAL STAY AT HOME ORDER IN EFFECT
On December 6, the State issued a Regional Stay at Home Order for Southern California went into effect as the region's ICU capacity fell below the threshold established by Governor Newsom: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/Regional-Stay-at-Home-Order-.aspx. The order prohibits private gatherings of any size, closes in-person operations except for critical infrastructure, and establishes capacity limits for retail and grocery stores. More information is available on the State's website: https://covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential-needs. The order will remain in effect for at least three weeks and will be lifted when the region's projected ICU capacity meets or exceeds 15%.
