Loudoun County Transit has made operational changes following the guidance of local, state and national health authorities to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure on the system’s buses. Although the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) extended the face mask requirement for individuals across all transportation networks throughout the United States through September 13, 2021, Virginia lifted mandates for physical distancing on transit buses.
