Airlines are beginning to scrap one ridiculous rule while Biden’s regime wavers

Americans are beginning to claw back their freedoms from the COVID regime.

People are sick of all the heavy-handed lockdowns and authoritarian mandates of the past two years.

Now airlines are beginning to scrap one ridiculous rule while Biden’s regime wavers.

When the Supreme Court struck down Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate, it was a huge blow to the COVID regime.

Soon after, even deep-blue cities began relaxing vaccine passport requirements.

Now a District Court judge struck down the Biden administration’s mask mandates for planes and trains, which has given companies more latitude to drop their masking policies.

The BBC reported that “US District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle said the national public health agency had exceeded its legal powers in issuing the mandate. The US transit authority said it would now no longer enforce mask wearing. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just last week extended the mandate until 3 May. Judge Mizelle is based in Florida, but federal judges can issue rulings that block nationwide government policies. Her order on Monday effectively removes the masking requirement in all airports, trains, taxis and transit hubs.”

The Biden administration is wavering on whether or not to appeal Judge Mizelle’s ruling as they weigh the enormous political risks, so the government-enforced mask mandates are over – for now.

In the meantime, airlines are free to set their own guidelines, and many are already abandoning masks.

United Airlines wrote in a statement, “Masks are no longer required on domestic flights, select international flights (dependent upon the arrival country’s requirements) or at U.S. airports. More comfortable keeping yours on? Go right ahead . . . the choice is yours (you look dino-mite either way)!”

Delta Airlines chimed in and said, “We are relieved to see the U.S. mask mandate lift to facilitate global travel as COVID-19 has transitioned to an ordinary seasonal virus. Thank you for your support in complying with the federal mask mandate and keeping each other and our customers, safe during the pandemic.”

Not only is there no legal basis for federal mask mandates on planes, it does not even make sense scientifically.

First, forcing people to wear masks except for when they’re eating or drinking does nothing to prevent the spread of aerosols.

Second, cloth masks provide no protection, and that is what most people wear – few people wear properly worn N95 masks on an hours-long airline flight.

Finally, planes have HEPA filters that constantly cycle clean air throughout the cabin.

Airplanes have not been vectors of transmission for COVID.

The new airline policies are a step in the right direction and a long-awaited sign the country may finally be returning to normal.
