ROCHESTER — Wearing masks at the Rochester International Airport will now be optional, the airport said Tuesday, April 19, 2022, in a Facebook post.

The change in policy will take effect immediately after the TSA issued guidance that no longer enforces mask-related regulations.

In the Facebook post, the airport noted the CDC still recommends people wear masks at indoor public transportation settings.

The airport encourages people to do "what makes you feel most comfortable."
