Statement Regarding Mask Enforcement at MSP Airport

(Minneapolis-St. Paul – April 18, 2022) The Metropolitan Airports Commission announces a change to mask enforcement regulations inside terminals and other facilities at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). Effective immediately, wearing masks will be optional after the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issued guidance that it will no longer enforce mask-related regulations and will be withdrawing security directives that required face masks at airports, on aircraft and other forms of public transportation.

The CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings.
