Howdy! The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that the mask mandate – which would have expired May 11th – has been extended through September 3rd – at the very least.
The mask mandate is the CDC-backed requirement that all passengers must wear face masks aboard planes, trains, buses and all forms of public transportation. In addition, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has also stated that it will uphold its strict enforcement of the mandate – which means pursuing legal action against those who violate the mask rule. However, the TSA did confirm that children under age two and passengers with certain disabilities will continue to be exempt from the mask regulation.
So don’t forget to pack those masks when you’re getting ready for your next adventure and be sure to follow the BHGH Travel Community for travel news as it happens!
