According to the Travel Advisory published by the LA County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) on February 3, 2021, “If you do travel into Los Angeles County from outside of California, you need to self-quarantine for 10 days after you arrive and must limit your interactions to people in your household/people with whom you live. If you travel into Los Angeles County solely for essential work purposes, you need to still self-quarantine outside of your work for 10 days and ensure you do not mix with others outside of those necessary to conduct your essential work.”
This advisory can be found at http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/traveladvisory.htm
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recommend a quarantine period, but because the County’s travel advisory is more restrictive than the CDC and CDPH, families within the Hart District will be required to follow those LACDPH health orders. This applies to vaccinated individuals as well.
“The more people travel, the more interactions people have,” the advisory says. “The more interactions people have with people outside of their household, the greater the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19.”
Individual families have to make their own decisions about the necessity of travel over Spring Break. Having said that, the Hart District respectfully requests that families avoid travelling outside the state if it is not absolutely necessary. Thank you for working together with us to ensure we enjoy a positive start to blended-learning.
The Hart District Spring Break will be the week of April 5 to April 9. Campuses are set to re-open to students on Monday, March 29.
