Masks must continue to be worn onboard trains as well as inside station buildings and enclosed platform waiting rooms, regardless of vaccination status. While onboard, masks must completely cover your nose and mouth and must remain on for the duration of your travel.

Free masks are available at staffed LIRR Ticket Offices, and will be periodically handed out by the “MTA Mask Force” at select locations.  

As of Monday, September 14, 2020, customers who refuse to wear a mask  are subject to a $50 fine by police.
