The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has extended the security directive requiring masks on public transportation conveyances and in public transportation hubs through April 18, 2022. Read the TSA announcement here.
During this time, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will work with the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding when and under what circumstances masks should be required for public transportation after mid-April. Any changes will be based on the COVID-19 community levels, risk of new variants, national data, and the latest science.
FTA will share updates as soon as possible. Learn more about FTA’s mask guidance for public transportation through the FTA Transit Mask Up webpage.
