Revised Temporary Targeted Safer at Home Health Officer Order for Control of COVID-19


Effective today, Wednesday, December 30, 2020, and will remain in effect for as long as the State Public Health Officer’s Regional Stay At Home Order remains in effect in the Southern California Region. The Order continues to put a great emphasis on requesting all County residents to remain in their homes except as necessary to conduct activities specifically permitted in the Order.

The revised temporary Order includes the following revision:

  • Except as provided in Appendix W, persons arriving in the County of Los Angeles from anywhere outside of the Southern California Region (Region) on or from non-essential travel, including returning County of Los Angeles residents, must self-quarantine for 10 days after arrival. Such persons must stay home or another place of temporary shelter and away from contact with others, including those in one’s household (unless they are also under quarantine), for a period of 10 days. Quarantine may end after Day 10 if the traveler(s) never had any symptoms, and they continue to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days after arrival. If such quarantined person develops symptoms of or tests positive for COVID-19 during the quarantine period, they must isolate themselves as required by the Health Officer’s Order for Isolation. For purposes of this Revised Temporary Order, non-essential travel is defined as travel or transportation that is conducted mainly for tourism, recreation, or visitation purposes.
