U.S. Travel Praises Extension of Federal Mask Mandate

The Transportation Security Administration recently announced the extension until September 13 of the federal requirement that masks be worn on airplanes, in airports and on public transportation.

In response, U.S. Travel Association executive vice president for public affairs and policy Tori Emerson Barnes issued the following statement:

“Extending the federal mask mandate for travel is the right move and has the travel industry’s full support,” he said. “The universal wearing of masks in the travel environment is both an effective safeguard against spreading the virus and boosts public confidence in traveling—both of which are paramount for generating a sustained reopening of the travel economy.”
