A law has been in place since the start of the pandemic that requires masks to be worn on planes, trains, and other public transportation under the supervision of the TSA.
The Supreme Court has said that the ruling will stay in place.
A lawyer in California named Jonathan Corbett argued that there is no authority for the TSA to mandate masks like it did during the pandemic on trains, planes, or buses.
According to My Twin Tiers, the Supreme Court of Appeals decided there was no merit to Corbett’s claims.
They decided the TSA would maintain the power to require masks if they see fit.
The court of appeals has decided the ruling will stay in place.
Despite this, the TSA actually stopped requiring masks in April after the CDC mandate was struck down by a federal judge in Florida.
