Orlando International Airport removes mask mandate

Orlando International Airport will no longer require visitors to wear facial coverings through its facilities.

The announcement came earlier this week from the airport.

“Following a Federal Court decision and updated directives from the Transportation Security Administration, the wearing of facial coverings will no longer be mandated at Orlando International Airport,” reads a press release from the airport.

The airport says that it will continue to make use of “enhanced cleaning methods” that it has enacted since the pandemic began in March 2020.

Although the airport will remove signage from the terminals that directs patrons to wear masks, airlines and shops within the airport may still require masks to be worn.
