Health officials issued a warning against leisure travel due to upcoming Spring Break.
They are stressing that anyone who travels out of the area is still required to quarantine for 10 days when they return to Los Angeles County.
According to County public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, she stated "We may just be weeks away from reducing transmission in L.A. County enough so that additional re-openings are permitted. However, with increased case numbers in other states, and more circulating variants of concern, spring travel can lead to another surge that frankly would be almost impossible to tolerate. Travel increases the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. To avoid this, please postpone travel and continue doing your part to slow the spread so that our recovery journey isn't sidelined.''
