Appeal of the Department of Justice Decision on the Transport Mask Order

The Department of Justice on Wednesday issued a notice of appeal to the Federal Court of Appeals.

Shortly before the DOJ announcement, the CDC issued a statement urging the department to appeal now instead of waiting until next month.

The agency said in a statement that “CDC’s ongoing assessment of the need for masks in the home corridor will continue to be important for public health.” . ”

The Department of Justice is set to continue its appeal on May 3 – the date on which the mask order expires – until the Florida judge intervenes – if the CDC believes the mask proclamation should continue.

However, the CDC made it clear on Wednesday that the timeline was not enough, especially with the emergence of the BA.2 omicron submarine virus that scientists are still studying.

The agency said in a statement: “As mentioned earlier, masking is very important in congested or poorly covered areas, such as the corridor.” “People wearing masks in such places” will help keep people and those around them, including those who have immunizations or who are not yet vaccinated, and make travel and public transportation safer for everyone, “the CDC added.

The decision to remove the federal mask, which has been in effect since the early days of the epidemic, was contested by US District Judge Katherine Kimball Michel on Monday against Donald Trump. In a 59-page ruling, she ruled that the law exceeds the authority of US health officials, saying “they do not even resort to illegal means to pursue their interests.”

Most major US airlines and airports lifted the mask duty immediately after her decision, with some taking it in the middle of a flight. Amtrak, Uber and other major transit providers have done the same.
