Facemasks Out At Logan After Federal Judge Strikes Down Mask Mandate

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The mask mandate at Logan Airport was on its way out on Tuesday, after a federal judge ruled against the national mandate on public transportation the day before.

Hours after the ruling from the U.S. Middle District Court of Florida, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said it had dropped its mask mandate on flights, at travel hubs, and on other forms of transit.

A spokeswoman from MassPort told WBZ NewsRadio that the agency had seen the TSA's ruling on Monday night and would be "removing all signage about the mandate" at Logan Airport. As of early Tuesday morning, most people traveling through the airport were still wearing masks.

Many airlines have dropped their mask requirements and are now mask optional, including JetBlue, which maintains a hub at Logan.

A spokesperson for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, and the MassPort announced on Tuesday that they are also dropping mask mandates on public transportation, including on buses and trains.
