Travel advisory for those arriving from another state or country at Union Station

To help stop the spread of COVID-19, Los Angeles is requiring all travelers entering the city from another state or country to fill out an online form acknowledging that they have read and understood California’s 14-day quarantine advisory. Travelers arriving at Union Station will see signs, similar to the ones pictured below, reminding them of this requirement.

Travelers over the age of 16 must submit this form online prior to or upon arrival at Los Angeles International Airport, Van Nuys Airport, or Union Station. Failure to fill out the form could result in a fine of up to $500.

The form and more information regarding this travel advisory can be found at travel.lacity.org.

  1. If Metro doesn’t want people to travel during the holidays, why doesn’t it close Union Station to Amtrak passengers, Metrolink passengers, and Flyaway airport bus passengers for a week?

    The mayor of Los Angeles and 3 of his appointees sit on Metro’s Board of Directors who run Union Station. The mayor is in charge of the Los Angeles Police Transit Bureau, which patrols Union Station. The mayor is in charge of Los Angeles International Airport and Van Nuys Airport. If he doesn’t want people to travel during the holidays, why doesn’t he close his airports and his train station? The airports were shut down when the terrorists stole airplanes on September 11th, and the COVID-19 pandemic is a far more serious emergency.

    IF the various levels of government don’t want people to travel over the holidays, why don’t they get rid of Thanksgiving and Christmas as holidays, let their employees celebrate the holidays with their IMMEDIATE HOUSEHOLD on the weekend, and give theur enokitees a compensatory holiday in the middle of some other week?

    I will wear a mask and stay away from people who are not in my own household. But I am so sick of government officials acting in an inconsistent manner during the disease pandemic.

  2. All this sounds great but how is the County of Los Angeles going to stop those commuting via their personal vehicles from entering Los Angeles? The real culprit in my mind and a subject the elected and appointed officials refuse to address is public transit. Wearing of masks has proven to be imposable to enforce as well as social distancing. In order to slow down and stop this virus from spreading both bus and all rail service must be shut down along with liquor stores, smoke shops and tattoo parlors. None of these services are essential but instead only convenient for those utilizing them.
