TSA: Court ruling drops mask requirement at airports nationwide
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration says it will no longer require face coverings in airports, after a court ruling on Monday. TSA officials say masking will no longer be enforced on public transportation, and new directives scheduled to take effect this week were dismissed.
The Tri-Cities Airport says neither employees nor customers are required to wear a mask, although they may wear one voluntarily. Officials say travelers may still want to check with their respective airlines of choice and its requirements.
