Mask Update

Update: April 19, 2022


As a result of a court order, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) January 29, 2021 Order requiring masks on public transportation conveyances and at transportation hubs is no longer in effect. Therefore, CDC will not enforce the Order. CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time.


In light of this ruling and latest TSA guidance, HARTransit continues to recommend masking on its buses, especially noting an increase in positive COVID tests statewide, but will not enforce the masking rule. This update is subject to additional clarification or change.
