Calif., Wash., Ore. governors issue travel advisories

Biden aide casts doubt on U.S. COVID lockdown as West Coast states advise against travel California Issues Travel Advisory Urging Visitors to Self-Quarantine for 14 Days After Arrival

Persons arriving in OR from other states OR countries, including returning OR residents, should practice self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. The Golden State is now averaging about 6,300 new cases a day over the past week, up from about 3,200 a month ago, according to a Times analysis.

"Californians are encouraged to stay home or in their region and avoid non-essential travel to other states or countries", the advisory states.

On Thursday, Inslee delivered an address alongside his wife Trudi, urging Washingtonians to avoid gatherings for Thanksgiving and the December holidays as COVID cases continue to rise statewide and across the United States.

Asked to characterize the Washington advisory's authority - whether it is a mandate and whether there are consequences for not following it - Governor's Office spokesperson Mike Faulk wrote in an email that "Put simply: These are recommendations, not requirements".

With COVID-19 cases on the rise around the state, Governor Gavin Newsom has issued a new travel advisory asking residents to limit travel outside and into the state.

In April, Washington, California and OR joined in a "Western States Pact" with shared principles of health and science rather than politics for fighting the pandemic and reopening their economies.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown also ordered a two-week "freeze" that will close gyms, museums, pools, movie theaters and zoos, the Associated Press reported.

"Especially those that are elderly, and vulnerable, and at risk for severe disease, to really adhere to these proposed advisories and guidelines".

California, and other states, have experienced a spike in COVID-19 cases over the past couple of weeks.

In addition to the self-quarantine, the advisories recommend travelers "limit their interactions to their immediate household".

Bowser defended attending the celebration, branding it as "absolutely essential travel", though it actually contradicted her state's quarantine order.

"Limiting and reducing travel is one way to reduce further spread of the disease". The number of cases has been steadily rising since mid-September, creating what health officials call a third wave of the pandemic's spread. "This puts our state in as risky a position today as we were in March", Washington Governor Jay Inslee said.
