Masks are still required on all public transit in New York State.
The Rochester-area Regional Transit Service (RTS) announced they had lifted their mask requirement for all riders and employees on Tuesday, April 19. Now, it appears they have walked back that statement after a conversation with the governor’s office, according to News10 NBC.
Governor Kathy Hochul clarified that masks are still required on all public transit in New York.
RTS said it will continue to have masks available at its facilities. The transit authority operates in Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Seneca, Ontario, Orleans, Wayne and Wyoming counties.
