Center for Disease Control and Prevention Issues Mandatory Mask Order for Public Transportation Systems

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the U.S. has issued a mandatory mask order on public transportation systems including, rail, and van, bus and motorcoach service providers, but the Order exempts commercial motor vehicles if a truck driver is the sole occupant of the vehicle.

The Order also clarifies that the mask requirement becomes mandatory for a truck driver once they enter a transportation hub such as a port.

More information about this Order can be found on the CDC’s website, which also includes CDC’s FAQ’s for conveyances and transportation hubs which can be found here.
