28 Apr Masks Still Required on Public Transit in LA County
Masks continue to be required by everyone ages two and older, regardless of vaccination status, on public transit and within transportation hubs in Los Angeles County. Transportation settings where many people are in shared indoor space for extended periods of time are vulnerable to spreading COVID-19 to large numbers of people. The new mask requirement is supported by the CDC’s latest assessment that masking on public transportation remains essential to protecting public health.
This order pertains to buses, taxis, ride-shares, commuter trains, subways, airport and bus terminals, and other ports.
Masks continue to be one of the most effective ways to prevent spread, with respirators (N95, KN95, KF94) or medical grade masks providing better protection than cloth masks.
