When will masking on public transportation end?
Are air travel and other forms of public transportation next? That could take some time to rev up.
“The TSA face mask requirement is scheduled to end on March 18, 2022,” Chelsea Boyd, a research fellow with the R Street Institute, told the Washington Examiner. “However, it could be extended again.”
Boyd said she believes that “federal mask mandates for transportation will likely end when the federal public health emergency designation expires.”
When will that federal health emergency order expire?
“There’s some pressure to allow it to expire sooner rather than later. However, predicting exactly when the administration will deem the emergency period over is anyone’s guess,” Boyd explained.
That emergency period is set to run through April 16, “although they could terminate it early or renew it,” Boyd said.
