US judge overturns requirement to use mouth masks on public transport and planes

The judge ruled that the NHS Center for Disease Control and Prevention had exceeded its powers by introducing compliance. The Tampa court overturned the settlement and referred them to health authorities.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki called the statement “disappointing.” “The CDC continues to recommend the use of masks on public transportation,” the spokeswoman said, noting that authorities will now review whether to take action against the decision.

A senior government official said Monday evening (local time) that the mask requirement imposed by the CDC is no longer in effect for the time being. So the TSA wouldn’t enforce the compliance in the first place.

The Justice Department, which can decide on the appeal, has yet to respond.

President Joe Biden introduced requirements for anonymity on public transportation shortly after taking office in January 2021. A few days later, the CDC ordered masks to be worn on planes, ferries, trains, subways, buses, and taxis, as well as at airports and train stations. and ports.

The scheme has been extended several times, most recently until the beginning of May. However, resistance has grown in recent months: About 20 Republican-controlled states and several major airlines have demanded that the obligation be rescinded.
