CDC Face Mask Mandate

March 30, 2021

CDC issues Federal Mandate for Public Transportation

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a mandate requiring masks to be worn on public transportation starting February 1, 2021. The move comes after the Executive Order 13998, President Joe Biden called on federal agencies to “immediately take action” on the mask mandate last week. The order applies to airplanes, taxis, trains, buses, subways, and ride-shares, but private vehicles are exempt. While many people have already opted to wear masks in such public settings, the new order means not wearing a mask in such situations will be considered a violation of federal law.

 FACE MASK MANDATE

The Federal Government, State of California and Humboldt County have mandated face coverings while riding transit.

Passengers cannot ride HTA without one unless exempt. If you have a medical condition and your medical provider has instructed you not to wear a face mask (over mouth and nose), these individuals are instructed to wear a full-face shield. These individuals are also required to complete the HTA Reasonable Modification Grievance Form before the request is granted.

Mask Etiquette

January 15, 2021

Mask Etiquette

The CDC’s general guidance for stopping the spread of germs through sneezes or coughs:

  1.  Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
    Still use a tissue, even if you’re wearing a mask as an extra protective layer outside the mask to prevent transmission.
    • Carry extra masks with you in case the one you’re wearing gets soiled after you cough or sneeze into it. If you need to replace your mask or wipe your nose with a tissue, be sure that you are as isolated as possible from others. Masks aren’t fail-proof, especially if you’re not wearing it properly.
    • Throw used tissues or soiled masks in the trash.
  2. Remember to immediately sanitize your hands or use bus sanitizing stations after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

Masks must be worn at all times in accordance with Humboldt County Public Health Orders
