RED BLUFF — Tehama County Public Health has shared a revised travel advisory from the California Department of Public Health.
Californians should stay within 120 miles of their home unless they are traveling for essential purposes in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 and help contain any new sources of infection, according to a press release issued Thursday by the county.
Essential travel includes work and study, critical infrastructure support, economic services and supply chains, health, immediate medical care and safety and security.
Traveling into California from other states or countries for tourism or recreation is strongly discouraged.
Anyone traveling into Tehama County from outside California should self-quarantine for 10 days, the release said.
Some exceptions include individuals meeting urgent healthcare needs or other emergency response, individuals who have tested positive for the virus within the last 90 days either before or after travel and have completed their isolation period and are asymptomatic and individuals within 90 days of the second dose of a two-dose COVID vaccine or the only dose of a one-dose COVID vaccine.
Individuals who routinely cross state or country borders for essential travel for whom self-quarantine is impractical must comply with all masking and social distance guidelines.
“Postponing travel and staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19,” the release said. “We continue to encourage testing.”
