USA introduces compulsory masks on public transportation

Under ex-President Trump, the proposal by the US Food and Drug Administration was rejected - but has now been implemented on the instructions of his successor Biden: From next week onwards, masks will be compulsory in public transport in the USA. Last week, the new US President Joe Biden had instructed federal authorities to take measures to make masks mandatory on public transport. If a passenger refuses, however, he or she is now in violation of federal law under the CDC's regulation, so that flight attendants or conductors, for example, can better enforce the obligation.
