Heading into the holiday travel season, the Governors from California, Washington and Oregon have issued travel advisories. Visitors entering these states or returning home from another state should self-quarantine for 14 days to help slow the spread of the virus.

Yikes! Be very particular whom you invite over for Thanksgiving.

“The incidence of COVID-19 is increasing in many states and countries. Persons arriving in California from other states or Californians returning from other states or countries could increase the risk of COVID-19 spread,” the travel advisory reads in part.

The advisory discourages people from traveling out of state unless it’s essential. Essential travel is defined as “work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care, and safety and security.”

In addition, those arriving from another state or country are asked to self-quarantine for two weeks once they arrive.

Meanwhile locals are urged to limit their interactions to people within their own household and stay local.
