Air passengers in the US have been removing their Covid-19 face coverings after a federal judge ruled that the government's mask mandate on commercial planes was unlawful.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had previously insisted mask rules remain in place until May 3, but the judge in Florida struck down that directive on Monday.

On Wednesday, the CDC announced it had asked the Department of Justice to appeal the ruling, saying in a statement that the measure is "well within CDC's legal authority" and "remains necessary for the public health."

Airlines have already begun relaxing mask requirements but not without some initial confusion. Questions are swirling.

So what are the new rules? Do they apply to international travel? Will an appeal reinstate the order? How safe is flying maskless? Here are the answers to some of the key questions.'s ConvergeBlog

Almost two years into the pandemic, large numbers of employees are working from home—often on insecure networks, juggling the competing demands of home and work, and carrying the financial and mental burden brought on by the global health crisis. Many may never return to their offices. It is time for corporate leaders to acknowledge this "new normal" and offer their dispersed workforce the same duty of care as they would to an employee who is traveling to a high-risk destination on business.
