Read the statement Biden’s administration has just released on the matter, as a response to a federal court in Florida, which is striking down the national mask mandate for airlines and other forms of public transport.

“The agencies are reviewing the decision and assessing potential next steps. In the meantime, today’s court decision means CDC’s public transportation masking order is not in effect at this time. Therefore, TSA will not enforce its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs at this time. CDC recommends that people continue to wear masks in indoor public transportation settings.”
As reported earlier, a federal judge in Florida voided the national mask mandate covering airports, planes and other public travel. U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle ruled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention failed to justify its decision and did not follow proper rulemaking.
United Airlines responded to the news by dropping the mask mandate immediately.

“Effective immediately, masks are no longer required at United on domestic flights, select international flights (dependent upon the arrival country’s mask requirements) or at U.S. airports,” UA said in a statement.
The judge that struck down the national mask mandate, Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, is a 35-year-old judge who clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
