Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) opted to wear a mask while in a large crowd, except she did so just for a photo op, and immediately took it off after the picture was taken.
The congresswoman was attending a protest that took place on the steps of Capitol Hill, calling for the eviction moratorium to be extended. Other left wing politicians including Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Rep Cori Bush were also present at the event.
A maskless AOC joined the protestors for a photo-op on the steps of the Capitol. However, she opted to put on a mask for just the photo. Current CDC guidelines do not recommend masking outdoors for those who are fully vaccinated.
