Will TSA mask mandate be extended past April 18 expiration?

Andrew Noymer, epidemiologist, demographer [and associate professor of public health] at UC Irvine, weighed in on the conversation, stating to KCBS Radio that he would stay masked up even if the mandate is lifted. “That’s tricky. I know the airlines are pushing very hard to lift that, they’re not happy about it. I personally would mask on any flight, whether or not the order is lifted, but that being said I am a big believer of being careful,” he explained. … “I think going through the security line in TSA is probably a riskier affair than actually sitting in your airplane seat for four hours.”
