Masks Still Required on Public Transportation

The FAA issued a press release to remind the public that masks are required for passengers while they are travelling in public transportation.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) remind the traveling public that at this time if you travel, you are still required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations,” stated the FAA press release on May 14, 2021.

The CDC has lifted mask mandates for those who are fully vaccinated. People can continue to wear masks and maintain a safe distance from others, but everyone, even fully vaccinated people, must follow the laws and workplace guidance.

CDC guidance is clear that fully vaccinated people are safe to travel and can resume travel. Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
