Many may still continue to wear them, but masks are no longer required on New Jersey Transit effective today.
“The Transportation Security Administration [TSA] announced that it will no longer enforce a mask mandate in public transportation settings. Masks will no longer be required on NJ TRANSIT and by South Jersey Transportation Authority. Individuals may wear a mask based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk,” said Gov. Phi Murphy in a statement Tuesday.
The news comes shortly after a Florida federal judge through out the mask mandate for public transportation. Many airlines immediately made masking optional after the mandate was struck down, including Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines and JetBlue.
Many spring break travelers who may have had to wear a mask to their destination will not be required to upon return. The CDC still recommends that people wear masks in indoor transportation settings. What will you do?
