Just ran across this Associated Press article that covers the topic fairly well. |
Of interest IMO
The Transportation Security Administration will extend the requirement to wear a mask on planes, trains, subways and other public transportation including airports and bus terminals through the winter. Fines, which were doubled earlier this year, will remain in a range of $500 to $3,000.
The mask rule has become a flashpoint on flights, and some in the airline industry are eager to see the mandate go away. Airlines have reported more than 5,000 incidents of unruly passengers to federal authorities since the start of the year, with about three-fourths of the events involving passengers who refuse to wear a mask."
"In the past week or so, online searches for international flights have dropped sharply while searches for domestic flights have remained fairly stable, according to figures from travel agent and search engine Kayak."
Still confused about the whole Omicron thing. They don't know anything substantial, but the news pumps it for all its worth while telling us not to panic. Quite confusing, unless you consider the profit from increased viewership / advertising revenue.
An old saying from my childhood is I don't know whether to shit or go blind.
