Clarification from the USCG on the requirement to wear masks on "public maritime vessels" (02/01/2021)

The information below is quoted verbatim from an inquiry submitted to the US Coast Guard's email link...

The Executive Order (EO) 13998 uses the term “public maritime vessels" and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) further clarified the EO intent through their order "Requirement for Face Masks on Public Transportation Conveyances and at Transportation Hubs" to apply to all commercial vessels. At this time, the current guidance applies to all commercial vessels which is inclusive of fishing vessels, uninspected passenger vessels, cargo ships, tankers, charter passenger vessels, ferries, towing vessels etc.

A copy of the CDC Order can be found here .
