Effective June 12, 2022, in accordance with updated CDC guidance, air passengers traveling to the United States are no longer required to show a negative COVID-19 test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding.
Effective April 18, 2022, as a result of a change in federal policy, masks are no longer required on public transportation including on the MBTA (except on The Ride), commuter rail, buses, ferries, and airplanes, or while in rideshares (Uber and Lyft), taxis, and livery vehicles. Face coverings are also no longer required inside or outside of transportation hubs, including train stations, bus stops, and airports.
Wearing a mask provides protection against COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses, especially when indoors or in crowded spaces. Consider wearing a mask especially if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease or is unvaccinated.
