The Department of Justice on Tuesday announced that it will appeal the Florida judge’s decision striking down the mask mandate on transportation if the CDC determines masks to be necessary. 

The DOJ and the CDC “disagree with the district court’s decision,” Justice Department spokesman Anthony Coley wrote in a press release, per Just the News. 

The Department will “appeal, subject to CDC’s conclusion that the order remains necessary for public health,” he continued. 

"The Department continues to believe that the order requiring masking in the transportation corridor is a valid exercise of the authority Congress has given CDC to protect the public health. That is an important authority the Department will continue to work to preserve," he wrote.

"On April 13, 2022, before the district court’s decision, CDC explained that the order would remain in effect while it assessed current public health conditions, and that the Transportation Security Administration would extend its directive implementing the order until May 3 to facilitate CDC’s assessment," he added.

"If CDC concludes that a mandatory order remains necessary for the public’s health after that assessment, the Department of Justice will appeal the district court’s decision," he concluded.
