The U.S. has imposed mandatory travel requirement




The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a sweeping order. The order requires the use of masks in all forms of public transportation as the country continues to report thousands of daily deaths from COVID-19.

This was reported by Reuters.

The order, which goes into effect Monday, requires that masks be worn by all travelers on planes, ships, trains, subways, buses, cabs, and shuttles. As well as at air and seaports, train stations and other transportation hubs.

The CDC's sweeping order was preceded by an order from U.S. President Joe Biden on Jan. 21.

Under Donald Trump, who was president until Jan. 20, the CDC's requirement for mandatory travel masks was blocked.

Henceforth, airlines would ban passengers from flying in the future for failing to wear masks. The CDC said people who violate the order could face criminal penalties.

The order states that passengers must wear masks while traveling except for brief periods, such as to eat, drink or take medicine. The exceptions are travelers under the age of two and those with certain medical conditions. They will be required to test negative for COVID-19.

In addition, the CDC order states that airlines and other operators must “at the first safe opportunity, disembark any person who refuses to comply.”

In addition, domestic travel for federal employees will be limited to “critical travel only,” and federal office occupancy will henceforth not exceed 25%.

U.S. authorities believe that the global community should conduct a full international investigation into the source of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

Recall that the number of confirmed cases of infection with coronavirus in the world has exceeded 100 million people. More than two million people have already died of complications caused by COVID-19.
