Temporary Suspension of LAX Daily Flight at Prescott Regional Airport and New Requirements for Individuals Traveling to Arizona
Due to emerging challenges in California, United Airlines is temporarily suspending service from Prescott Regional Airport (PRC) to/from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) starting on April 12th. The LAX-PRC and PRC-LAX service is planned to resume on May 4th, 2020. The daily Prescott (PRC) to/from Denver (DEN) flight will remain available. Currently, Denver International Airport still offers 218 United Airlines daily departures to 133 destinations.
Effective midnight tonight, Prescott Regional Airport will comply with the Governor’s Executive Order 2020-24 on “Requirements for Individuals Traveling to Arizona”. Prior to boarding a flight to Prescott (from DEN or LAX), inbound airline passengers will be notified (by the Airline) that those entering Arizona from places of substantial community spread – including but not limited to the New York and the Tri-State area – shall immediately isolate or self-quarantine for 14 days upon arriving.
The Executive Order does not apply to the following people: airline employees; military personnel; healthcare workers; human services personnel; workers conducting essential infrastructure operations; and workers providing essential governmental functions. However, these people should follow guidelines from the CDC to minimize the risk of spread of COVID-19, such as wearing non-surgical masks.
For questions about this travel requirement or for help on the current list of “places of substantial community spread”, call the Yavapai County Health Department at 928-442-5103.
