Local Public Health Orders
ATTENTION: Health orders from the State of California and San Francisco Bay Area Counties recommend staying home as the safest method to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and have issued a travel advisory urging against non-essential travel. The California Public Health Travel Advisory instructs persons arriving in California from other states or countries, including returning California residents, that they should practice self-quarantine for 10 days after arrival. These persons should limit their interactions to their immediate household. This recommendation does not apply to individuals who cross state or country borders for essential travel.
The San Francisco Bay Area is now under the State of California’s Regional Stay Home Order. Additionally, San Francisco and Santa Clara counties have implemented mandatory quarantines for any person arriving to and staying in these counties, unless specifically exempted by the health orders. Visit flysfo.com/quarantine for additional information.
If you do travel, practice physical distancing: stay at least 6 feet apart from other people. You do not need to stay 6 feet apart from people who live in your household. Do not travel if you are feeling sick or have a fever. Check with your airline for the latest schedule information. The San Francisco Department of Public Health also provides guidance on safer holiday travel during the pandemic.
