Air travelers wearing protective face masks walk at JetBlue Terminal 5 at JFK International airport in New York on Nov. 16, amid the coronavirus epidemic.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday recommended travelers continue to wear masks in airplanes, trains and airports despite a judge’s April 18 order declaring the 14-month-old transportation mask mandate unlawful.

The CDC said it based its recommendation on current COVID-19 conditions and spread as well as the protective value of masks.
