L.A. County Requiring 10-Day Quarantine for Travelers as California Braces for Continuing COVID-19 Restrictions

L.A. County Requiring 10-Day Quarantine for Travelers as California Braces for Continuing COVID-19 Restrictions

Meanwhile, a Stockton hair salon raided by armed officers from the California Department of Consumer Affairs and a “journalist” outs a restaurant’s New Year’s plans.

California was the first state to implement coronavirus lock-down measures. The approach was seemingly so successful at “flattening the curve” and not overwhelming hospital capacity, Gov. Gavin Newsom seemed to be riding his success to future political opportunities.

However, the Golden State is dealing with a significant surge, and ICU capacities in several areas are at 0%, despite the nearly year-long masking and social distancing rules that have been in place. The new, more restrictive pandemic control measure currently implemented will likely be extended well into the New Year.

The stay-at-home order in the San Joaquin Valley and Southern California would have been eligible to expire as early as Monday, but with ICU capacity at 0% in both regions, the restrictions are set to be extended. Newsom said Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly would likely make the announcement on Tuesday.

The Greater Sacramento area could see restrictions ease as early as Friday and the Bay Area could exit the order as of Jan. 8 if ICU capacity rebounds. Those two regions could also see their stay-at-home orders extended if intensive care capacity remains critical.

Los Angeles County is reporting 14,000 COVID-19 cases daily. County public health officials have announced a 10-day quarantine for anyone coming into the area.

The Los Angeles County Public Health Department reported that the new guideline applies to anyone who travels outside the county.

Officials did not limit the requirement to a specific mode of travel.

“Because of the likelihood of exposure to COVID-19 while traveling outside of L.A County, for everyone that traveled or are planning to travel back into L.A. County, you must quarantine for 10 days,” the department said in a news release.

Meanwhile, businesses that have been forced to remain closed or reduce operations to meet the rules are chafing under the restrictions that did not work as promised. And while many law enforcement agencies in the state will not crack-down on those businesses ignoring lock-down orders, California agencies are stepping in to conduct raids.

Without warning Wednesday, uniformed officers with the California Department of Consumer Affairs entered the Pomp Salon in North Stockton’s upscale Lincoln Center.

“About five armed state police officers burst into our salon shouting drop everything you’re doing. Stop, you’re being shut down,” said Vicki Kirk, salon co-owner.

Kirk said the officers spent an hour inside questioning why the seven-year-old salon with forty stylists was open in the midst of the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.

On cell phone video recorded by Kirk, defiant stylists challenged police officers with their own questions.

“It was one of the worst days of my life to have that scene happen in our salon when we are only trying to work,” said Kirk.

…Pomp Salon remained open once the officers left.

“Why does a hair salon have to close, but Target can stay open and Walmart can stay open? Where’s the connection? And, what’s the specific infection rate you’re attributing to these salons?” said Dino Ballin, Kirk’s husband and salon co-owner.

And if the state agencies don’t get you, the Woke Media will.

A restaurant in Beverly Hills is facing criticism for trying to plan a “discreet” New Year’s Eve dinner violating California’s coronavirus restrictions.

…A journalist in the Los Angeles area tweeted an image of the invitation, which allegedly were inserted into to-go bags from La Scala. The dinner was supposed to have a 1920s prohibition/speakeasy theme.

“We are considering taking reservations for New Year’s Eve Dinner. Inside,” the invitation reads, asking the recipient to let La Scala know if they are interested in participating. “If enough interest we’ll contact you back to secure a reservation (sic). Please keep this discreet, but tell all your friends.”

The City of Beverly Hills contacted the restaurant and reminded management of the current dining restrictions, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The good news is that Americans still get to vote with their feet, California has recorded its lowest growth rate in history.

For the second straight year, more people left California than moved to the state, resulting in a net migration loss of 135,600 people. People left the state in similar numbers as they did last year. but far fewer people moved to California, especially from April to June, when the state was under a stay-at-home order because of the pandemic.

LA, CA, CCP

In one up that. It’s been 7 years and I have no plans to return.

1) Testing positive with a PCR test (how many cycles, BTW??) is NOT the same as contracting “Covid.”

2) What’s the case fatality rate? Not scary enough I’ll bet, so they have to play games with numbers to hit their daily quota of fearmongering.

Enough with the games. Doff the stupid masks, tar & feather the politicians, run them out of town on a rail, and open up.

    What’s the case fatality rate? Not scary enough I’ll bet

    It does beg the question as to whether the ICUs should have 0% remaining capacity. It is implied, but not actually outright stated, that the ICUs are full of covid patients. Is this actually the case? Second, how many of those patients are actually under honest threat of death? If they aren’t they shouldn’t be in the ICU. Is there perhaps some monetary incentive at work to explain ICU overcrowding?

      alaskabob in reply to randian. | December 30, 2020 at 7:25 pm

      Having practiced in Riverside, my best guess is that triage puts only the very worst patients in ICU and that means patients usually going to ICU for observation are not there. That puts moderately ill patients trending toward serious on a bubble. National Guard mobile hospital has been set up in Riverside.. but no staff yet. They set aside the old Sears store and parking area in past as back up. It is a mess. Again… who are these people in the hospital as to where they are coming from? There have been, in the past, life-flights from Mexican border of illegals crossing for care as nothing available in Mexico for them. But that has been hushed up.

1) This will get people nationwide used to not wanting to live in, or do business with anyone/thing in LA County at all. Tourism in southern California should be cancelled, permanently.

2) Flying through LAX or any other LA area airport probably should be avoided pretty much permanently, as should AMTRAK, buses, and driving through LA County.

3) And while I recommend both other volumes in the series too, read Matt Bracken’s “Domestic Enemies” to see where LA is going. Coastal California is a hostile foreign country.

    Just how many of the hospitalized patients are US citizens is a fair question to ask? If not.. then what is happening to US citizens when no beds?

    1) War against Wuhan Flu… we are losing(if hospital numbers OK)
    2) War against US economy …we are losing
    3) Biological war by CCP on USA and West…we are losing
    4) War against the Republic …need I say more?

    Indeed – thank you so much, California, for adding yet one more item to the existing 63 I have on my list of reasons why I will never, ever again visit California.

Oh, this is great. Do they have any idea how many LAPD officers, county sheriff deputies, firefighters and health care workers who work in LA county but live in Ventura, Orange, Kern, Riverside or San Bernardino counties? So they are all supposed to quarantine for 10 days when they come into LA county to do their jobs? How do we take our freedom back from these self-anointed health nazis?

Formerly known as Skeptic | December 30, 2020 at 5:24 pm

So, if you travel to an area with a LOWER infection rate, in other words where you have a lower risk of getting infected than if you stayed at home, you have to quarantine when you come back? Tell me how that makes ANY sense.

“armed officers from the California Department of Consumer Affairs”.

Say WHAT?

Also, the bloke that I can see in the accompanying photo clearly says ‘Police’ on the back of his vest, not ‘California Department of Consumer Affairs’.

How about not falling into the same sensationalist, lying style of the MSM.

Please note well: the Police are ALWAYS ARMED!

Don’t make it sound like the ‘California Department of Consumer Affairs’, armed with ‘Assault Rifles’ and grenade launchers, kicked the doors in on a restaurateur and hurled smoke and stun grenades in!

I follow this site CONSTANTLY to get a balanced report that I can trust. Please, Please don’t become the enemy!

As for the rest of the article, I’m with you.

Very interesting…….

LA’s New Soros Prosecutor is the OG Soros DA — the Guy Who Pitched Soros the Idea of Destroying the United States Through a Communist Corps of DAs
Vanguard.

Over the last year or two, the plague of “Soros DA’s” has become somewhat well-known across the country. Philadelphia�s Larry Krasner was sworn in then immediately cleaned house; Chicago’s Kim Foxx inexplicably dropped charges against Jussie Smollett; St. Louis’ Kim Gardner charged the McCloskey’s for defending their own home against a Black Lives Matter mob; and Contra Costa County, California’s Diana Becton issued a guidance mandating that her deputies determine whether someone “needed” an item before they could be charged with looting.
Let’s not forget San Francisco�s Chesa Boudin, son of Weather Underground bombers who was raised by Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn, who looks the other way for most crimes.

Boudin was elected after longtime San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon decided to move “home” to Los Angeles and challenge incumbent DA Jackie Lacey, who wasn’t quite radical enough for LA�s burgeoning Black Lives Matter scene. What most people don�t know is that Gascon is the OG Soros DA, and that it was at Gascon�s urging that Soros plunged the first $50 million into what I’ll dub the Progressive Prosecutor Project — through the ACLU, which funded shadow groups to move the money through, of course.
Are we allowed to mention facts like this or nah?

Spoiler: the answer is “no,” we’re not allowed to criticize Nazi collaborator George Soros or his communist, anti-American DAs.

In fact, the ABC news station in LA just ran a critical piece about this Gascon bacteria.

After threats from Gascon, they pulled the critical article and put up a puff piece in its place.

Jennifer van Laar reported that Gascon had offered a “sweetheart” deal to a gang-member murderer.

ABC reported on that sweetheart deal — but Gascon began making threats against ABC behind the scenes.

And then they memory-holed their report…..-Ace of Spades

Gascon Is Behind Soros’ Progressive Prosecutor Movement, Encouraged $50M Seed Donation to ACLU

My entire state has been under a “mandatory, voluntary, 14 day quarantine” for anyone who enters the state since late spring. It has been widely ignored by all. The state has, on the books, procedures in place for isolation and quarantine and there’s nothing voluntary about it. It takes a court order and affords due process. The only people who are really adhering to it are state workers who can take a vacation and then tell their supervisors they went out of state and get another two weeks pay to sit at home.

All Trade Shows & Conventions scheduled for LA in 2021 have been cancelled. Thousands of people will be out of work for 2021. The tyrants who run LA don’t care.

Florida is open for business.
The theme parks are open, and Las Olas Blvd. and Atlantic Avenue are packed with diners and shoppers.
I would say about 1% of the people are wearing masks in the street.
The ICUs (plural) in my hospital are at the customary rate of utilization.
So all the tourists who would go to California are welcome to come here to Florida.
It is such good luck that our Republican governor, Ron DeSantis won in a close recount.
If the Democrat had won, you can bet we would be in the same situation as California.

    randian in reply to docduracoat. | January 1, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    Broward (indeed, all 3 SE FL counties) still requires masks to enter any business. It is no surprise that the FL counties that have mask mandates are all Democrat-controlled counties.
