May 3 – U.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President for Public Affairs and Policy Tori Emerson Barnes issued the following statement on the announcement that the Transportation Security Administration has extended until September 13 the federal requirement that masks be worn on airplanes, in airports and on public transportation:

 

Extending the federal mask mandate for travel is the right move and has the travel industry’s full support.
