In the last hour, we have received an update regarding the nationwide mask mandate following today’s court decision. In accordance with Transportation Security Administration (TSA) no longer enforcing the federal mask mandate and the withdrawal of Security Directive 1542-21-01E for airports, face coverings will no longer be required for employees and customers at Tucson International Airport (TUS).

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend that individuals wear masks in indoor public transportation settings. Masks will continue to be available free of charge at TUS information booths in baggage claim and at airline ticket counters.
