Novel Coronavirus Preparedness and Response

The Marina del Rey Convention and Visitors Bureau is working with Los Angeles County and our local tourism partners to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-2019) outbreak. Currently, the health risk to the general public in California remains low. Click here to read updates from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health in response to reports of a novel (new) coronavirus. We will continue to share key updates as they are received.

The Latest Message from U.S. Travel Association

From the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have been highly engaged with public health authorities, key government officials at the White House and other critical agencies. While the latest message from U.S. health and security officials acknowledges the possibility of the virus spreading within the United States, we are confident that appropriate measures are in place to contain the spread of the virus and mitigate its impact.

At this time, authorities have not issued any guidance that is specific to travel and meetings in the U.S.

  • The U.S. government has issued warnings for travel to Italy, Japan, South Korea and Iran in addition to China. For the latest travel alerts, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) web page with COVID-2019 Information for Travel.
  • When it comes to the American public, the CDC is consistent in its precaution to practice every day preventative measures to help stop the spread of germs, as typical in the current flu and respiratory disease season.
  • We are also closely monitoring how upcoming global trade shows and conferences are preparing for, responding to and messaging around COVID-19. Decisions around whether to hold trade shows and conferences vary from event to event. However, global travel trade shows, including ITB Berlin, are continuing as planned.
  • We are coordinating with economists to understand how this rapidly evolving situation may impact both the travel industry and the trade show industry. Our forthcoming Travel Trends Index, to be distributed March 3, will include analysis from January 2020 that will inform projections for the next six months.

-Roger Dow, President and CEO, U.S. Travel Association
