State Officials from the California Department of Public Health Strongly Advise the Following:
-Californians stay home or in their region and avoid non-essential travel.
-Anyone arriving in California should voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days.
(It is important to note that L.A. County recommends that travelers stay home for 14 days when arriving in LA after travel.)
Before Traveling this Holiday Season Ask Yourself the Following:
1. Is COVID-19 spreading at your destination?
2. Are you or someone you live with at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19?
3. Does your destination have requirements or restrictions for travelers?
If you plan to have guests in your home, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials say these are the steps you can take to make it safer:
• Have a small outdoor meal with family and friends who live in your community.
• Limit the number of guests.
• Have conversations with guests ahead of time to set expectations for celebrating together.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between use.
• If celebrating indoors, make sure to open windows.
• Limit the number of people in food preparation areas.
• Have guests bring their own food and drink.
• If sharing food, have one person serve food and use single-use options, like plastic utensils.
If you have questions and would like to speak to someone call the Los Angeles County Information line 2-1-1, which is available 24 hours a day.

- Carving or decorating pumpkins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends
- Decorating your house, apartment, or living space
- Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
- Having a virtual Halloween costume contest
- Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with
- Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house
CDC officials say if you think you have COVID-19 or you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should not participate in physical Halloween festivities and should not give out candy to trick-or-treaters.
