(KYMA, KECY/NBC News) - The TSA is hiking fines for travelers who refuse to follow a federal mask mandate for air travel.
The transportation security administration is doubling those fines as a part of President Biden's new strategy to fight the Coronavirus.
The new penalties will range from $100 to $500 for first offenders and $1,000 to $3,000 for second offenders.
These new fines will go into effect Friday.
The fines are just one part of the new Covid-19 strategy the President announced Thursday.
