I am traveling to San Francisco this week but I have a connecting flight in Los Angelos and on the website it is stating possible COVID test needed. Has anyone who had a connecting flight in Los Angelos is this true or did they ask to your negative Covid test ??? Please help

No,  no testing is required in California,  nor any sort of quarantine. 

 

Allegedly,  by Tuesday,  no masks either.

Even if not vaccinated??

Yes... vaccines have yet to have ANY effect on any flights in or into anywhere in the USA, with the exception of interisland Hawaii or avoiding a second test when you get them from the mainland. 

 

So not being vaccinated doesn't impact you at all in every other situation, and being vaccinated doesn't buy you anything.

What website did you read this? 

 

Looking at Southwest, it mentions nothing about needing a negative COVID test to fly in/around California. If you are traveling *to* LA, you may be required to quarantine, but that won't apply to you. 

 

If you are just connecting through LA, how does needing a negative COVID test make any sense?
