Federal mask mandate starts today

Tuesday, February 2, 2021 by Tai Moses

The Biden administration’s federal mask mandate goes into effect today, requiring all users of public transit to wear face masks in an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19. Capital Metro issued an announcement reminding its customers that “new federal regulations now require customers to wear masks while on transit vehicles and when at our facilities. The face masks must cover your nose and mouth and attach around the ears. Bandanas and other single-ply fabric coverings do not meet this new requirement and will be prohibited.” Read the full order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
