Customers with unique mask requirements should bring the appropriate face covering that best meets their needs.
Customers with underlying conditions that explicitly prevent the wearing of a face covering or mask are strongly encouraged to reconsider travel or should be prepared to provide documentation and evidence of safe travel prior to departure at the airport. If you require this exemption, please arrive early to complete the process during check-in and avoid missing your flight – this process can take over one hour. Please arrive early to allow additional time. Mask exemptions only apply for travel on flights operated by Silver Airways and Seaborne Airlines and do not exempt customers from any requirements that may be imposed by governments, including local, state or foreign countries, (at the origin or destination) or from requirements on other airlines.
Any false claims of a disability or health condition to obtain an exemption from wearing a mask or face covering may result in the suspension of travel privileges on any Silver/Seaborne operated flight for the duration of the mask/face covering requirement.
The latest CDC Order is available at www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/p0130-requires-face-masks.html
TSA has extended their face mask requirement for individuals across all transportation networks throughout the United States, including at airports, onboard commercial aircraft, on over-the-road buses, and on commuter bus and rail systems through September 13.
