Travelers Into L.A. Now Must Sign Form Acknowledging COVID-19 Quarantine


As coronavirus cases continue to rise throughout Los Angeles, out-of-state travelers arriving in the city by air and train must now sign a form acknowledging the county’s 14-day quarantine requirement, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced Monday.

According to the Los Angeles Times, new the form will be required beginning Wednesday, November 25, in time for the last waves of Thanksgiving travelers coming through Los Angeles International Airport, Van Nuys airport, and on trains arriving at Union Station.

Signs will remind travelers of the requirement, and airlines will notify their passengers as well, Garcetti said. Failure to fill out the form could result in a fine of up to $500.

The form, which is available at travel.lacity.org, acknowledges that anyone traveling to California from other states or countries should self-quarantine for 14 days and limit interactions to their immediate household. All travelers over the age of 16 must fill out the form by submitting their name and contact information.
