Americans are required to wear masks in transport
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has ordered residents to wear medical masks on domestic and international travel.
“The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will require people to wear masks at TSA check points, as well as in the commercial and public transportation system,” the report said.
It is noted that the relevant decision allows the agency to implement the decree of President Joe Biden on promoting security due to the spread of COVID-19.
In fact, wearing masks is required almost everywhere in transportation in the United States. At the same time, the federal authorities can not influence the decisions of local authorities that establish requirements for wearing masks in other public places.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 26 million cases of coronavirus have been identified in the United States, and almost 440,000 people have died.
