SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — With COVID-19 continuing to resurge, California is joining several other West Coast states in issuing a travel advisory ahead of the holiday season.

California, Oregon, and Washington simultaneously announced a Travel Advisory for Non-Essential Travel for their residents on Friday morning. The advisory urges people coming to California from other states or countries to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival.

The advisory is also encouraging Californians to avoid non-essential travel to other states or countries.

California became the second state in the US – after Texas – to reach one million confirmed coronavirus cases on Thursday, according to numbers from Johns Hopkins University.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said that the grim milestone should be a sobering reminder that the virus isn’t slowing down.

“Increased cases are adding pressure on our hospital systems and threatening the lives of seniors, essential workers and vulnerable Californians,” Newsom said in a release. “Travel increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, and we must all collectively increase our efforts at this time to keep the virus at bay and save lives.”

The governors acknowledged that limiting travel during the time of year when many head out to see family will be difficult but necessary.

More from CBS Sacramento:

“This will be hard, especially with Thanksgiving around the corner. But the best way to keep your family safe is to stay close to home,” said Oregon Gov. Kate Brown in a statement.

Back in October, California public health officials had issued guidance that prohibited gatherings of more than three households.

    These criminals keep using terms like “advisory” and “guidance” to dupe the gullible public into believing that these musings have “standing in law.” They dont. These ramblings by the governors are just smoke and mirrors. Only the naive media watching fools even listen to this covid rhetoric anymore. Elon Musk just took 4 covid tests in the same day, at the same lab, by the same nurse and he got two positive and two negative results. Its a hoax, a common cold virus, gussied up as a devil, deliberately designed to scare the populace into compliance, nothing more. There is a 99.99% survival rate with, according to the CDC, only 9210 actual deaths from covid only. Go out, enjoy your holidays, enjoy your family, turn off the tv and live your lives. If you turn off the tv, you will see no evidence of a pandemic, because there never was. Wake up from your slumber.

      Put on a mask and cover your mouth. We dont care if it is fake or if it is so dangerous that you have to take a test to see if your have it. We dont care that the test is inaccurate, and we dont care if the economy is shut down, children will starve, the poor will suffer, businesses will shut down, suicides will rise, jobs will vanish, domestic violence will rise, drug overdoses will rise or if the fabric of sane society will disappear, WE DONT CARE. It is our right to be scared of nothing. It is our right to destroy this nation’s economy, it is our right to muzzle ourselves with masks and it is our right to impose our baseless beliefs on innocents. The virus gives us the right to do what we want and people like you, with your sanity, are messing it up. Put on a mask and cover your mouth, and a hat to cover your sane mind. Its our lie, let us live it. Shame on you for spoiling our hypochondria and our Stockholm syndrome. Put on a mask, obey, and stop your pesky critical thinking because it might rub off on others.

      You are wrong the government is our friend. They tax us for our own good. They vaccinate us for our own good and I trust them 100%. They should lock down society for good, weekly test us, issue us immunity passports and vaccinate all essential workers. Police, governors, judges, media, first responders, politicians should get the vaccine first because they are the glue of our world, we need them healthy. I believe everything I see on the television, social media and this belief keeps me safe. Washing hands, wearing masks, vaccinations, contract tracing, alienating family and holidays is a small sacrifice to pay when I know that I will not get sick. You live in your world and I will live in mines. Give me the shots, give me the lockdowns and pay me to stay home. I dont need friends or family because I have the “experts.” Keep the children locked down until they are adult to flatten the curb too.
