Mask Mandates for Air Travel

| Posted in Blog

If you’re wondering when the Biden Administration will back off mask mandates for air travel, the answer is sometime before the November election. I don’t mean to sound flippant about it, but that’s the answer. At some strategic, well-choreographed moment between now and November, unelected government bureaucrats at the CDC will unravel that agency’s mask guidelines for air travel. And right on cu...
