Federal Judge Struck Down CDC's Airline Mask Mandate

A Florida judge wrote Monday that the CDC exceeded its statutory authority by renewing mask mandates for air travel. The judge wrote that the word "sanitation" used in the law limits the CDC to cleaning measures and that a "mask cleans nothing."
