US CDC Issues Federal Transportation Mask Mandate Effective February 1

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an order late Friday requiring masks in interstate transportation and at transit hubs, including airplanes, mass transit, taxis and trains, starting late Monday.

The CDC said the mask mandate, effective from Feb. 1 at 11:59 p.m. EST, also covers ride-share vehicles and subways and makes not wearing a mask as instructed a violation of federal law. The order does not apply to private cars or commercial trucks being driven by a sole operator.

The CDC directive follows an order from President Joe Biden on Jan. 21 directing agencies to “immediately take action” to require masks on transportation and at transit hubs.

  1. Won’t matter in the long end. Biden still hasn’t figured it out. All of. This is for not. The existing methods is like pouring a thimble of water on a forest fire

    1. So, it is your opinion that Biden needs to continue Trump’s superspreader events? Did those matter in the long end? Should Biden continue Trump’s support for those Americans that believed it was their right to spread COVID? We are aware of “the long end” of Trump’s lack of a national plan got the U.S.–441.048 deaths. Trump’s “Democrat Hoax” campaign was quite successful in his “America First” goal. We are “America First” in COVID cases and COVID deaths. WHO is it that consider responsible for the “forest fire”?

      1. More Dem bs. Odd that riots and looting were not labeled as such…and protected by DeBlasio…

        Christmas was going to be a “super spreader” event. By numbers were going up long before and now….DROPPING.

  2. Is sleepy, pedo Joe so lost he doesn’t know these standards and rules are already in place?

    1. Literal sock puppet, repeating insults fed to you by others.
      And no, these “standards and rules” most certainly are NOT “in place”. You literally don’t know what you’re talking about.

  3. Unfortunately we’ll have to listen to all the whining and crying that anti masker’s poor little “rights” are taken away. Selfish…
