Waiting areas, commercial transport and public transport

You must wear a face mask when at airport passenger transport and waiting areas such as public pick up areas, taxi ranks, skybridges and Airtrain platforms.

Masks must be worn by both driver and passenger at all times in taxis, rideshares and commercial shuttles, unless the driver is alone in the vehicle.

Air crew and airport workers who are not interacting directly with passengers do not need to wear a face mask.

Domestic commercial flights

You must wear a mask when boarding domestic commercial flights at the airport.

Check to see if your destination state or territory has rules in place regarding the wearing of face masks on planes and in airports.
