Citrus quarantine expanded to include parts of four counties
CORONA – (INT) – A quarantine has been expanded after the citrus disease Huanglongbing (HLB) was detected in multiple residential citrus trees within the City of Corona.
The new 107-square mile quarantine area will link up with the east side of the existing quarantine in Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange, and San Bernardino counties.
The quarantine prohibits the movement of all citrus nursery stock or plant parts out of the quarantine area.
The only exception allows for the movement of commercially cleaned and packed citrus fruit. Fruit that is not commercially cleaned and packed, including residential citrus, such as oranges, lemons, grapefruits, and kumquats, must not be moved from the property on which it is grown.
