The TSA Will Not Enforce Mask Mandates Following a Florida Ruling

The Transportation Security Administration will not enforce the mask mandate on public transportation, after a federal judge in Florida on Monday vacated the Biden administration’s national Covid mask mandate for planes and other forms of public transportation, ruling that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had overstepped its authority.
