A new rule will require passengers at MSP to wear masks in ticketing lobbies, parking ramps, shuttle buses and trams, rental car facilities and in any outdoor areas where keeping at least 6 feet from others would be difficult. It will go into effect on July 27.

Travelers at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport will be required to wear masks while in terminals and other airport facilities starting Monday.

The rule aimed at helping to slow the spread of COVID-19 comes as several major U.S. airlines already require travelers to wear masks on flights. The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) approved the regulation Monday, joining other airports that require passengers to wear masks, including Chicago's O'Hare and Midway airports, Denver, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Seattle, Detroit, San Francisco, Miami and Phoenix.

"It's time for us to make face masks mandatory at MSP, and it's consistent with our goal that we want to have the safest possible airport," said MAC Chairman Rick King. "It's a simple straightforward way to cut down on the spread of the virus."
