The Tri-Cities Airport would like to remind all visitors to the airport that while Washington state has lifted COVID-19 mask requirements, face masks are still required while in the airport terminal and on the airplane.
Even if vaccinated, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires that everyone aged two and older wear a face covering while inside the airport through mid-September. Masks are also required while boarding and traveling on an airplane. However, the TSA recently revised its policy and airport visitors are no longer required to wear a mask while outdoors at airports, including in the parking lot or on the curb.
“The federal mask mandate is currently in place and we ask everyone who visits the Tri-Cities Airport comply with regulations by wearing a mask inside the terminal,” stated Buck Taft, Director of the Tri-Cities Airport.
