It shouldn't.

As TWA884 said - there's never been any enforcement. I live in LA County and have been flying out and back regularly and there have been no issues. The form was like jaywalking - it was a mechanism they could use to detain people who were doing something egregious, but as long as you were making a reasonable effort to not spread covid, nobody was going to do anything. It just wouldn't have been possible for a number of reasons. And now LA county is basically going full open, with no masks required (at least not by governmental agencies) in most environments if you'e vaccinated, but it's also basically all honor system. The group fitness workouts I attend have alternate sessions for mask-optional and mask-required, where the option of no mask is only for vaccinated people, but it's also honor system. They've been very good about complying with local rules, including coming up with gloves on an hour's notice when Pasadena briefly added them as a requirement, but there's never been any visible enforcement.

And if your daughter is eligible to be vaccinated and willing, there are free vaccinations using the J&J vaccine (one and done) at LAX during regular business-ish hours (7am-5pm). The county (and I think all California) policy is that anybody can get a shot. You'll be asked for ID and insurance, but if you don't have them or don't want to show them it doesn't matter - you can still get a vaccine for free, no hassle, and probably minimal wait.

Those are recommendations, not requirements.

How old is your daughter?

She will be 11. Not eligible for vaccine for a while yet.

It doesn't really seem worthy of its own thread, and it's related to quarantine policies, so I'm going to post it here, but mods should feel free to move it if there's a better spot.

Starting Saturday July 17, indoor mask requirements return to LA because of the rapid spread of covid (including the Delta variant) in LA, largely among the unvaccinated. Reports say there will be some exceptions, but details aren't out yet. This doesn't directly affect LAX, since masks were already required by federal rule, but probably does mean the LA City arrivals form will stick around for a while.

ETA: I should also have noted that the Cities of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Pasadena *may* establish different policies than LA County since they each have their own health department. So far all three have worked closely with each other and the county to keep policies relatively consistent across the county, but there are also differences in vaccination and infection rates among them, so some deviations are plausible.
