SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Transit Authority on Tuesday announced that it is dropping its mask mandate for riders on its buses and trains.

The decision comes less than 24 hours after a federal judge ruled that mask-wearing will no longer be enforced at airports across the country.

In a tweet, UTA said that while masks would no longer be enforced, employees will continue to clean and sanitize and masks will still be provided for riders who want one.

After Monday's ruling, the Salt Lake City Airport also said it would stop enforcing mask-wearing.
