LA County to Lift Mask Requirement for Mass Transit, Airports

With COVID-19 transmission falling, face masks will no longer be required on buses, trains and other mass transit vehicles in Los Angeles County starting Friday, nor will they be mandated at airports and other transportation hubs.

Los Angeles County was the only jurisdiction in the state still requiring the mass-transit masks. Beginning Friday, face coverings will only be “strongly recommended” on transit vehicles and hubs.

County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said transit masks will remain only “strongly recommended” as long as the county stays in the federal government’s “low” COVID activity level and the weekly infection rate remains below 100 new cases per 100,000 residents.
