(April 20 – 27)
A judge has struck down the federal mask mandate for airlines, trains, and mass transit. This ruling came just after the CDC extended the travel mask mandate.
Major airlines say masks are now optional. Amtrack did the same, though some regional transit systems will still require masks.
Companies can now make policy decisions or simply leave it as an individual option.
The Justice Department plans to appeal the ruling voiding mask mandates.
