Effective Immediately: Major Airlines Make Masks Optional


With a federal judge in Florida striking down the national mask mandate for airplanes and other public transportation on Monday, Alaska Airlines was among the first to announce wearing face coverings onboard their aircraft is now optional.

Several other airlines, including United, Delta, American, and Southwest also announced masks are optional on their U.S. flights, effective immediately.

As airlines and airports ditch the mask requirement, however, officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to recommend that people wear masks while taking public transportation.

Meanwhile, Uber says it will no longer require its drivers and riders to wear masks and the front seat will be open again for those who wish to sit in the front.
