What are some of the general tips for travelers to California during the COVID-19 outbreak?
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected how the world works in ways big and small, including our approach to travel. The following tips will help you navigate the new challenges and prepare you for your trip to California:

  • Before committing to anything, find out if any travel bans or restrictions apply — in both your origin and destination. Keep informed with the latest updates by reviewing government travel advisories.
  • You’re required to wear a face mask at the airport, including at screening checkpoints. You should be prepared to adjust your mask for ID verification when asked by a TSA employee.
  • Instead of handing a TSA agent your boarding pass, place it straight on the scanner yourself. Once that’s done, hold it up for inspection.
  • TSA now allows passengers to take one container of hand sanitizer, up to 12 oz (350 ml) in size, in carry-on baggage. This will have to be removed from your bag for screening.
  • Place any personal items (e.g, keys, phone and coins) in your carry-on rather than a bin to reduce handling during the screening process.
  • If you’re planning to take food on the plane, place it in a clear plastic bag and then into a scanning bin. This lessens the likelihood that a TSA agent will need to touch your carry-on bag or food container for closer inspection.
