Trade association Airports Council International -- North
America is urging the U.S. government to require all individuals in airport
terminals to wear facial coverings over their nose and mouth.
“This will help to minimize the spread of Covid-19 and
re-instill confidence of those who work in or travel through America’s airports,”
said Airports Council International CEO Kevin Burke.
Some individual airports already require people to wear
face masks, including Denver and Los Angeles International.
