Airline CEOs ask Biden to lift mask mandates, saying they ‘no longer make sense’
(Worthy News) – A group of 10 major airlines are now calling on President Joe Biden to lift the federal transit mask mandate, one of the last remaining mask mandates in the country.
The industry group Airlines for America sent a letter to the White House saying rules like the mask mandate “no longer make sense.”
“Our industry has leaned into science at every turn. At the outset, we voluntarily implemented policies and procedures – mandating face coverings; requiring passenger health acknowledgements and contact tracing information; and enhancing cleaning protocols – to form a multi-layered approach to mitigate risk and prioritize the wellbeing of passengers and employees,” the letter said. “However, much has changed since these measures were imposed and they no longer make sense in the current public health context.” [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
