TSA: You still need to wear a mask to board a plane


(WWLP) – Despite the CDC’s new guidelines, you’re still going to have to wear a mask when you board a plane.

The TSA made the announcement Thursday:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the U.S. Department of Transportation 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. 

CDC guidance is clear that fully vaccinated people are safe to travel and can resume travel.

The agency extended their mask mandate to September 13, about two weeks ago.

But, the TSA said they will continue to work with the CDC to “evaluate the need for these directives.”
