Under this new directive, travelers using airports, airports, commercial aircraft, and various modes of surface transportation (including passenger railroads, intercity bus services, and other public transportation) are subject to a new range of penalties if they violate the requirement to wear a mask. The new range of penalties are $500-$1000 for first offenders and $1000-$3000 for second offenders.
