Professor Sharona Hoffman Quoted in Los Angeles Times about Airplane Mask Requirements

Co-Director of the Law-Medicine Center Professor Sharona Hoffman

Professor Hoffman was quoted in an article entitled ““Don’t Want to Wear a Mask on the Plane? Too Bad. Airlines Now Will Require It,” published in the Los Angeles Times on June 29, 2020. 

Professor Hoffman explained that “Airlines are private businesses and airlines have a right to have rules of their own about what you can and cannot do on their premises.”  This is no different from a restaurant indicating “no shirt, no shoes, no service,” according to Hoffman.
