The United States has extended the mask requirement at airpots, train stations, and bus stations through September 13.
The Transportation Security Administration, who oversees the rules at those federally regulated stops, said the rule that took effect in February was set to expire on May 1.
Children under 2 years old will be exempt from the rule, as well as those who have certain disabilities.
Violations carry fines of up to $1,500.
Meanwhile, the AP reports that a spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration said Friday that the FAA will continue its zero-tolerance policy against disruptive airline passengers as long as the TSA mask rule is in effect.
