South Shore extends mask order until January
The South Shore Line is extending its mask order for all passengers and employees until January 18, 2022.
The South Shore Line is following the extension made by the Transportation Security Administration.
This extended order states that all passengers and employees must wear a mask or face covering regardless of vaccination status.
In addition to the TSA’s mask order, South Shore Line employees will continue to follow the Federal Railroad Administration’s “Emergency Order Requiring Face Mask Use in Railroad Operations” until further notice.
The Administration’s order requires the use of masks in all stations and on all trains throughout Indiana and Illinois.
South Shore Line employees will continue to strictly enforce the mask mandate. If a passenger needs a mask, employees will provide them free of charge.
Passengers who do not comply with the mandate could be removed from trains.
Passengers with medical/health issues and children under the age of two are exempt from the mask mandate.
Social distancing on trains and at stations is recommended when possible.
As of August 23, the Cook County Department of Public Health, which covers the City of Chicago, has implemented an indoor mask mandate.
