Covid-19 Rules Ease Globally

President Joe Biden’s administration will extend a requirement for U.S. airline travelers to wear masks for another month, while working on a policy about how and when to roll back the rule, according to officials familiar with the matter. 

The federal mask mandate for domestic travel on planes, trains and other transit is set to expire on March 18 and will be extended to April 18, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity ahead of an announcement.
