IFA Requires Proper Face Covering to Travel

IFA Requires Travelers to Wear Masks

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an Order Under Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act requiring persons to wear proper face coverings when using public transportation systems to help reduce the introduction, transmission and spread of COVID-19.  Beginning February 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM, the Inter-Island Ferry Authority (IFA) is mandated to require persons 2 years and older to wear proper face coverings when inside our terminals and when traveling on our vessels (except when on outside decks.) To the extent possible, the IFA will accommodate a passenger who is unable to follow this Order due to a disability or medical condition. We appreciate your cooperation with the IFA complying with the provisions of this Order.


Additionally, the IFA would like to inform you that regardless of your vaccination status facemasks are still required by Federal law in all enclosed areas of a public ferry and transportation terminal.  Please see terminal agent or crew member if you have questions.  Thank you for your cooperation.
