Due to a recent court ruling, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) order requiring masks to be worn on all forms of public transportation, including The Hop, is no longer in effect. The CDC does, however, continue to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings, and the Milwaukee Health Department shares that recommendation. While The Hop will no longer be enforcing a mask requirement, we continue to ask all passengers to wear masks covering their mouth and nose.
In addition to encouraging mask use for all passengers, we’re also doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19 through a rigorous cleaning protocol that includes twice-daily sanitization of all streetcars and station platforms.
