Franklin students will have to wear masks…on buses

Bussing FAQs - Franklin Public Schools

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will extend its mask mandate through at least January 18, 2022. President Joe Biden in January issued a flurry of executive orders that, in part, mandated masks on all forms of public transportation, including airports, commercial aircraft, trains, public maritime vessels and ferries and most bus services, including school buses (inter-city bus transportation).

The TSA first imposed the mandate from February through May, later re-upping the requirement with an expiration date of Sept. 13.

“TSA will extend the directives through January 18, 2022. The purpose of TSA’s mask directive is to minimize the spread of COVID-19 on public transportation,” a TSA spokesperson said.
