After court ruling, AUS continues to encourage masking
Tuesday, April 19, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano
Following a federal court order, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has halted its January 2021 order requiring masks on pubic transportation and at public transportation hubs, though it “continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time.” In response to the ruling, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport issued a statement saying it “awaits further direction and guidance from the federal government regarding enforcement and will communicate any impacts to passengers and staff accordingly. In accordance with public health advice issued by Austin Public Health, AUS continues to encourage travelers to wear masks. Travelers flying should connect directly with their airline for more information about airline mask policies on aircraft.”
