New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said that she will continue to wear a face mask, although she has received both the doses of her COVID-19 vaccine. The progressive Democrat told her followers on Instagram that they could do so if they wished. The Congresswoman had received her second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on January 6, the day of the Capitol riot when pro-Trump followers stormed the iconic building under the false assumption that they could overturn the November 2020 election results.
Ocasio-Cortez posted her views on wearing masks on Instagram. She told her followers that if they wanted to keep wearing their mask they could do so. She also said that she would be wearing her mask in the following locations: indoor public spaces such as elevators, subway, grocery store etc.
She also mentions that some New Yorkers are going to take time adjusting and to feel comfortable as the city was hit hard by the pandemic. She also mentioned that she may continue to wear a mask even after the pandemic is over if she felt that she may be sick and she didn’t want to spread the illness.
On a lighter note, she said that a mask was a nice accessory when a person doesn’t want to put on makeup. Dr. Jill Biden had also joked earlier saying that she would not have coordinated her outfit she wore when she visited West Virginia on Thursday. She has left for her trip masked and removed her mask when she reached the airport and was greeted by Jennifer Garner, who was masked and who also promptly removed her mask when she saw the first lady without one.
The CDC had revised its guidelines for the fully vaccinated, who have received both the doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. They need not to wear masks both outdoors and indoors, except at crowded indoor locales including buses, planes, homeless shelters, correctional facilities and more.
According to data from CDC 121,768, 268 people in America are fully vaccinated and 156,217,367 people have received at least one dose.
