The U.S. Department of Transportation last week announced its “Mask Up” campaign to help ensure the safety of transportation workers. 

The campaign is aimed at educating travelers and transportation providers on their responsibility to comply with wearing a mask when traveling.

The campaign is a joint effort by the Federal Aviation, Motor Carrier Safety, Railroad and Transit administrations across all forms of transportation. The core of the campaign is a digital toolkit including posters, social media, FAQs and other resources, according to a news release.

There is a national requirement to wear a mask while traveling, per the order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the current Transportation Security Administration's security directive. Failure to comply with the requirement can result in civil penalties.
