The days of flying without a mask are a thing of the past.
In the next couple of weeks, almost all airlines in the United States will require passengers to wear a cloth mask—in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus—whenever they board a plane.
JetBlue was the first airline to implement the face mask rule, announcing the requirement on April 27.
Delta, American, and United airlines followed suit Thursday, also insisting passengers don a mouth covering during air transit.
On Friday, SouthWest, Alaska Air, and Frontier airlines each announced that they too will require customers to wear personal protective equipment while in flight.
Starting on May 4th, JetBlue, Alaska, United, and Delta will make it mandatory to wear a facial covering. Frontier will start it on May 8th, and the rest will make it official on May 11th according to The Houston Chronicle.
San Fransisco International Airport is amping up its precautionary steps in the wake of Corona, mandating that every person must wear a face mask in order to enter the airport.
