“It’s very difficult to breathe in these masks,” said Crystal Price, who was traveling from Texas on Wednesday.

“I think they need to go, we take them away when we eat and drink anyway, so I believe they should go,” Price said.

“We’re still in the middle of a pandemic, I feel it’s in the best interest to protect others and still wear them,” said a woman named Nicole while traveling from Atlanta.

Nicole said during the flight from Atlanta to Baltimore, the flight attendants had to remind a few people to put on masks.

This letter comes amid concerns that another spike in COVID-19 cases may be imminent as officials closely monitor the spread of the new variant BA.2.

“You can be almost certain that you will see an increase. . . The real question is to what extent it will increase and we’ll just have to wait and see,” Dr Anthony Fauci said on CNN on Tuesday.
