California, Oregon and Washington on Friday issued a joint travel advisory discouraging nonessential travel and urging visitors and residents returning from other states to quarantine for 14 days.

Essential travel under the advisory includes “work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care and safety and security,” according to a Friday press release.

While other states such as Connecticut have mandated quarantine upon arrival for residents of high-risk states, California’s advisory falls short of a requirement. New York recently revised its quarantine order to exempt those from contiguous states and those who test negative at least 72 hours prior to arrival.

The California advisory applies to all out-of-state travel and visitors, including those from Oregon and Washington.

Context: The advisory comes as Covid-19 cases are increasing across California and the country. California just hit 1 million cases, and its positivity rate has climbed to 4.2 percent in recent weeks — a level not seen since early September, according to state Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly.

The Bay Area began considering a 14-day quarantine last week, Ghaly said in his Nov. 4 briefing. In the days since, nine counties have regressed to more restrictive reopening tiers, including two — Sacramento and San Diego — that entered the most restrictive purple tier. More than half of California residents are now living in purple-tier areas.

Los Angeles County, which remains in the purple tier, recommended Thursday that residents not travel out of state for the holidays and quarantine for 14 days upon their return if they do.
