The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an Order on January 29, 2021 requiring the wearing of masks by travelers to prevent spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Conveyance operators must also require all persons onboard to wear masks when boarding, disembarking, and for the duration of travel. Operators of transportation hubs must require all persons to wear a mask when entering or on the premises of a transportation hub. This Order must be followed by all passengers on public conveyances (e.g., buses) traveling into, within, or out of the United States as well as conveyance operators (e.g., drivers and other workers involved in the operation of conveyances) and operators of transportation hubs (e.g., bus terminals, ports of entry) or any other area that provides transportation in the United States.
People must wear masks that cover both the mouth and nose when awaiting, boarding, traveling on, or disembarking public conveyances. People must also wear masks when entering or on the premises of a transportation hub in the United States.
The use of a face covering should not be seen as a substitute for social distancing.
Please continue to observe rules regarding appropriate distancing while on an OK TOURS bus and on OK TOURS premises.
