Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she will continue to wear a face mask despite being fully vaccinated because ‘NYC got hit so hard that I think some of us are going to take time adjusting as we feel comfortable.’ 

Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive Democrat from New York, told her followers on Instagram that ‘if you want to keep wearing your mask then do it.’

‘Personally I’m going to keep wearing my mask in shared indoor public spaces like elevators, subway, grocery store, etc.,’ she said.

She indicated that she may continue to wear a mask even when the pandemic is done to prevent the spread of other illnesses if she feels sick.

‘Mask wearing is also something I’ll probably continue doing overall from time to time if I feel like I might be coming down with something and don’t want to spread it,’ she said.

She received her second vaccine dose on the day of the Capitol riots.

The congresswoman received her second vaccine dose on the day of the deadly Capitol riots on January 6, Newsweek reported.

Ocasio-Cortez also joked that a mask ‘is a nice accessory when you don’t want to do your makeup.’  

Last week, Joe Biden snapped at a reporter when the fully vaccinated president was asked why he continues to wear a mask ‘so often’ before he then put his mask on outdoors to fly to Camp David for the weekend again.

Biden, who received the first dose of the Pfizer shot on live television in December, had walked out to the podium with his mask on but removed it to give a briefing on the April jobs report in the East Room of the White House.

‘You walked out to the podium with your mask on. Why do you choose to wear a mask so often when you’re vaccinated and you’re around other people who are vaccinated,’ the reporter asked.

Biden replied: ‘Because I’m worried about you.’

The president then paused for a moment for effect before telling the press that it was a joke.

‘No, that’s a joke. It’s a joke. Why am I wearing the mask? Because, when we’re inside, it’s still good policy to wear the mask. That’s why,’ Biden said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines note that masks should be worn any time a person is in locations like correctional facilities and homeless shelters. 

‘Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance,’ according to CDC guidelines.

In the United States, 121,768,268 poeople are now fully vaccinated against the coronavirus while a total of 156,217,367 have received at least one dose, according to CDC data.
