The Biden administration will extend the federal mask mandate for all transportation networks through January 18.  

“TSA will extend the directives through January 18, 2022. The purpose of TSA’s mask directive is to minimize the spread of COVID-19 on public transportation,” a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) spokesperson told The Hill. 

TSA informed major U.S. airlines of the extension Tuesday, Reuters reported, citing three sources.

The mask mandate for travel on airplanes, in airports, on buses and on rail systems is currently set to expire on Sept. 13. It initially went into effect with an expiration date of May 11, but the agency first extended it in April.
