WATCH: Airline Passengers Cheer Judges Order to End Mask Mandate
The announcement is made over speakers that, due to a court order, effectively immediately, the TSA will no longer be enforcing travel mask mandates aboard airlines.
Over 50 studies, including a Stanford University Study, showed "Facemasks are Ineffective in Blocking Transmission of COVID and Actually Can Cause Health Deterioration and Premature Death."
Passengers are celebrating.
A federal judge in Florida declared the Biden administration’s Covid-19 mask mandate for public transportation unlawful, throwing out its requirement that travelers in the U.S. wear masks on airplanes, trains, taxis, buses and other forms of mass transit.
U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle in Tampa ruled Monday that the mandate exceeded the authority granted to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under federal public-health law and was issued in violation of rule-making procedures.
Let's take a look at an airport terminal where passengers waiting for their flights broke out into cheers and applause.
Here are Southwest Airlines employees hugging over the news.
