Per the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA), masks must still be worn on airplanes and in airports throughout the United States.
We ask all those traveling or visiting the Frederick Douglass - Greater Rochester International Airport to continue to comply with these federal guidelines.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky statement per NPR report 5/13/21:
In response to a question - Walensky said, “the federal mask requirement on public transportation remains in force for everyone, vaccinated or not – including on buses, trains, airplanes and in stations and airports.”
