Planes, trains and ferries: Where are masks still required while traveling in Washington?

From KING-5 TV:

“Nationally, most major airlines have announced they have lifted their mask requirements, but in Washington state, some public transit agencies are still requiring them.

“Alaska Airlines announced Monday that passengers would no longer be required to wear masks in the air, and Sea-Tac International Airport said the TSA would no longer be requiring masks. However, other local transportation companies are keeping their mask requirements in place while they wait to see if the federal government appeals the ruling.”

“These announcements come after a federal judge in Florida struck down the federal mask mandate on Monday, ruling it exceeded the authority of U.S. health officials during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Here’s a look at where you may or may not be required to wear a mask while traveling. The federal order applied to all public modes of transportation, including airports, buses and ferries.”
