The port will follow the guidance issued by the Federal Judge in Florida.
Have you been wondering if you have to wear a mask in a cruise terminal when you head to the ship? So far, there is only one terminal in the U.S. where you will not have to, and that terminal is in a city that once started a revolution.
The Flynn cruise port in Boston announced that masks are now voluntary and issued the following statement. Masks are now “optional,” and “the Transport Security Administration (TSA) no longer requires face masks” at cruise terminals, as well as “on Massport operated buses.”
“On April 18, 2022, the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, vacated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mandate for mask wear in airports, train stations, and other transportation hubs as well as on airplanes, buses, trains, and most other public conveyances in the United States, including vessels.”
The U.S. Coast Guard also stated that it would no longer “enforce the directives requiring mask use on public transportation and in transport hubs”.
