You will now have to factor in the cost of taking a COVID-19 test upon your return.

For now, the state is only accepting the deep nasal swab tests, which will cost you anywhere from a $120 to $140 per person. This applies to children of all ages.          

Of course, if you don’t take test – you’ll have to quarantine.     

So a family of four, would have to pay an extra $500 to go to Disneyland or Las Vegas.     

Leituenant Governor Josh Green says that if you’re a Kaiser member, they might pick up the cost for you.
