Update: CDC Extends Travel Mask Requirement Until May 3rd, Masks Will Continue to be Required on Ride On and Other Public Transportation

The Associated Press is reporting that the CDC will now be extending the mask requirement for travel until May 3rd to “allow more time to study the BA.2 omicron subvariant that is now responsible for the vast majority of cases in the U.S.”

Yesterday we reported that residents will no longer be required to wear face coverings when they are passengers on Metro, Metro Bus, Ride-On, and in taxis (including Uber & Lyft) after April 18. That is no longer the case.

According to the CDC, “in order to assess the potential impact the rise of cases has on severe disease, including hospitalizations and deaths, and health care system capacity, the CDC order will remain in place at this time.”

In March, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), at the request of the CDC, extended its face mask requirement for, “individuals across all transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems” until April 18. It was originally set to expire on March 18.

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation supplies masks for all riders who don’t have one.
