Feds Extend COVID-19 Mask Requirement on Public Transportation, Transit Settings

On Thursday, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), at the recommendation of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), extended its security directive requiring the use of a mask on public transportation and transportation hubs for one month, through April 18, 2022.

According to the CDC, during that time, the agency will work with its partner governmental agencies to help inform a revised policy framework for when, and under what circumstances, masks should be required in the public transportation sector. The revised framework will be based on the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels, risk of new variants, national data, and the latest science.
