TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is extending the security directive for mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs for one month through May 3rd.

This extension is based on a recommendation made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In a statement released Thursday, the TSA said, "CDC will work with government agencies to help inform a revised policy framework for when, and under what circumstances, masks should be required in the public transportation corridor."
