The governors of California, Oregon and Washington issued travel advisories ahead of the holidays in a move to stem the spread of coronavirus in their respective states.

The advisories were announced on Friday and urge people that enter the states or return from outside states to self-quarantine. The advisories also encourage people to avoid non-essential out-of-state travel as well as asking residents to stay local.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) noted COVID-19 cases have doubled in the state over the past two weeks.

“Every single day matters,” Gov. Inslee stated. “We cannot wait until our hospitals’ halls are lined with gurneys waiting for rooms before we take decisive action.”

On Thursday, Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D-Ore.)  said if the state doesn’t act immediately it will reach a breaking point. Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) recently noted the state passed 1 million coronavirus cases.
