Amid the national turmoil on Wednesday, the recently issued California Travel Council received little attention.
As outlined by the California Department of Public Health, the guidelines are intended to further restrict the movement of residents. Moreover, it includes the idea that “insignificant travelers from other states or countries are severely discouraged from entering California.
