The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published new mask guidelines for vaccinated Americans on Tuesday, stating, “Fully vaccinated people might choose to wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised.”
It is unclear if the 81-year-old California Democrat entered a building.
Rep. Lee Zeldin criticized Pelosi’s decision to require masks, while the Democrat-controlled Senate has not issued a mask mandate:
Breitbart News reported Wednesday:
The Capitol’s Attending Physician, Brian Monahan, Tuesday said he is now advising Congressional members, and staff is to wear a “well-fitted” super mask while inside if “other individuals are present.”
He wants the special mask worn everywhere by everyone: The House Office Buildings, the Halls of the House, and House Committee Meetings. He noted that the masks are now required everywhere, and masks will be provided to those without. Individuals who do not obey will receive fines.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Wednesday, “Twice today I saw the Speaker in a crowded room without a mask, less than 24 hours after imposing the mask mandate.”
In a panicked defense of her reinstating of the mask mandate and thus surrendering to the Chinese coronavirus, Pelosi called McCarthy a “moron.”
Pelosi’s office did not respond to a request for comment from Breitbart News before the publication of this article.
