COVID-19 Vaccine: The COVID-19 vaccine development is continually evolving. Information is changing daily, if not hourly. Learn more about the vaccine and efforts for distribution in Los Angeles County. 

COVID-19 Updates: On December 30, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health revised the Temporary Targeted Safer at Home Health Officer Order to include a Mandatory Directive on Travel (Appendix W). Persons arriving in Los Angeles County from anywhere outside of the Southern California Region on or from non-essential travel, including returning Los Angeles County residents, must self-quarantine for 10 days after arrival. Quarantine may end after Day 10 if travelers never had any symptoms and they continue to monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms for 14 days after arrival. If they develop symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 during the quarantine period, they must isolate as required. The Southern California Region is defined as the counties of Imperial, Inyo, Los Angeles, Mono, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura.
