JetBlue announced that starting on May 4th, all passengers will be required to wear a face mask that covers their mouth and nose. That will apply during checkin, boarding, while in-flight, and while deplaning.
Small children unable to keep on their face mask will be exempt.
The move comes after pictures circulated of many passengers on flights ignoring the CDC guidelines to wear a mask when in public.
Flights in Canada all require face masks, but there is no blanket requirement in the US. However I’d expect other airlines to match these requirements over the coming days as the country begins to test the waters and emerge from stay at home orders.
Do you wear a face mask when you go out in public?
