Federal mask mandate remains in effect at Naples Airport
The federal mask mandate requiring the traveling public to wear face masks or coverings in transportation settings, including Naples Airport, has been extended by the Transportation Security Administration.
The initial face mask requirement went into effect Feb. 1 with an expiration date of May 11. On April 30, the TSA extended its order through Sept. 13. TSA officials said the extension of the mask requirement is consistent with the updated policies from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to the order, children under two and those with certain disabilities are exempt from the mask requirement, but others could face penalties if they refuse to comply. Under TSA rules, penalties for noncompliance start at $250 and increase to $1,500 for repeat offenders.
