The Democratic governors of California, Oregon, and Washington issued travel advisories on Friday morning asking people visiting or returning home from outside those states to self-quarantine for 14 days to help slow the spread of coronavirus.
“California just surpassed a sobering threshold – one million COVID-19 cases – with no signs of the virus slowing down,” said California Governor Gavin Newsom. “Increased cases are adding pressure on our hospital systems and threatening the lives of seniors, essential workers and vulnerable Californians. Travel increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, and we must all collectively increase our efforts at this time to keep the virus at bay and save lives.”
The recommendations advise against non-essential out-of-state travel and encourage people to “limit their interactions to their immediate household,” a press release from Gov. Newsom’s office says.
