December 3, 2021


Updated L.A. County Travel Requirement for International Travel
On Nov. 30, the L.A. County Department of Public Health announced that any individual returning from a country known to have the Omicron variant within the past 14 days (whether visiting that country or transiting through) should follow the guidance below, regardless of vaccination status:
  • Get tested before you leave the airport, and if negative, test again in 3 - 5 days.
  • Quarantine for 7 days (even if you are negative). If you do not get tested, quarantine for 10 days.
  • Watch for symptoms for 14 days. If you get symptoms, isolate and get tested
    right away.
  • If you test positive, isolate for 10 days. Follow isolation instructions here.
LMU will continue to align with evolving state and county protocols surrounding COVID requirements. At this time, there are no further changes to university protocols.


Study Abroad Update
LMU Study Abroad is closely monitoring news of the Omicron variant and related travel restrictions. At this time, spring semester study abroad programs are continuing to run as scheduled, in alignment with local health and safety protocols, and modifications will be made if needed. Consistent with CDC guidelines for international travel, all study abroad participants are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Study abroad students have been advised to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine booster when eligible, in consultation with a health care provider. LMU Study Abroad will communicate any program-related updates with participants directly when necessary.
