Fly Easy at LGB

Passenger With Mask

Long Beach Airport is working closely with the Long Beach Health and Human Services Department and following the State health order to ensure the health and safety of all passengers and employees. 

  • Face masks. On April 21, 2022, the County of Los Angeles released a new Health Order that continues to require masking in all public transit within L.A. County and L.A. County indoor public transportation hubs. Per the County’s revised Order, masking continues to be required for everyone 2 years and older, regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status, on public transit within the County. Masking continues to also be required in indoor public transportation hubs including airports. The Long Beach Health Department will align with the County’s Order and will release an updated Health Order with specific details for implementation in Long Beach. The City’s official statement is available online.
  • Safe Travels Hawaii Program.

    Safe Travels update: Starting March 26, 2022, domestic travelers will not be required by the State of Hawaii to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test or vaccination when traveling to the Hawaiian Islands, nor will they need to create a Safe Travels account.
