FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - Area businesses are revising their mask policies after a federal judge struck down a national mask mandate on mass transit on Monday.

Fort Wayne Citilink sent a media release Tuesday morning saying masks are now optional starting April 19. They say there may be inconsistent mask enforcement over the next couple of days as the news is communicated to employees and riders. Citilink officials say they will continue to provide masks on all buses and facilities for anyone who would like one.

“We are glad we get to see our passengers smiling faces again,” General Manager/CEO John Metzinger said. “However, we understand some might have mixed feelings, so we ask riders and employees to be kind and respectful to one another during this transition.”

Also Tuesday morning, Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA) officials tweeted that effective immediately, anyone in FWA buildings is no longer required to mask up. They encourage those who do wish to wear a mask to continue to do so. Officials also say to check with your airline and other destinations for any specific requirements, as some state and local guidelines may differ.
