First steps to relax COVID-19 measures for air travel
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) take first steps to relax COVID-19 measures for air travel. They issued an update to the health safety measures for air travel, dropping the recommendation for mandatory wearing of medical masks in airports and on board a flight, while noting that a face mask is still one of the best protections against the transmission of COVID-19.
