Due to Transportation Security Administration rules, Kenosha Area Transit staff and riders will continue to be forced to wear masks on municipal buses and streetcars, according to city officials. As reported by Kenosha News in the article: Kenosha Transit Employees, Riders Required to Wear Face Coverings Until Sept. 13, the mask mandate for transit agencies is based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and is now extended to Sept. 13, said City Administrator John Morrissey. If people do not have their own mask, drivers will have masks on hand.

Even after Kenosha's mask ordinance expired at 12:01 a.m. on May 27, riders of the city's mass transit system will be required to wear face coverings, according to Morrissey. To combat the spread of COVID-19, the city ordinance now in effect compels anybody over the age of 5 to wear masks while visiting public venues and businesses across the city.

TSA rules apply to all transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial airplanes, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems, according to local officials. The TSA's first face mask requirement took effect on February 1st. Travelers under the age of two years old and those with specific disabilities are exempt from wearing a face mask. Repeat offenders face fines ranging from $250 to $1,500 for breaking the rule.
