BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A judge has struck down the recently-extended federal mask mandate for travelers.
A federal judge in Florida struck down the mask mandate on planes, trains and busses, ruling that the government has no authority to require travelers to wear masks as a way of slowing the spread of COVID-19.
The Biden administration called the ruling “disappointing,” but announced that the mandate would no longer be enforced. The nation’s largest airlines all dropped their mask requirements hours after the ruling.

I feel more comfortable wearing a mask as I feel protected. I have no issues with those who do not wish to wear them.Bruce Hay, Facebook User
