Fully vaccinated Kamala and husband Doug kiss with masks ON before she flies to Rhode Island where she picks up novel on ‘white male rage’

  • Vice President Kamala Harris and first gentleman Doug Emhoff shared a kiss in the lip-area through their masks before going their separate ways on Wednesday
  • Both Harris and Emhoff are fully vaccinated against coronavirus
  • Updated CDC guidance released last month says fully vaccinated individuals can be outside together without a face covering
  • Harris visited Rhode Island on Wednesday where she  made an unannounced trip to a book store where she bought four books – one about ‘white male rage’

Kamala Harris and first gentleman Doug Emhoff kissed through their masks Wednesday – even though they are vaccinated – as the vice president traveled to Rhode Island where she stopped by a local store to buy four books.

Before going their separate ways as Harris prepared to board Air Force Two for a day trip to Providence, the vice president and her husband shared a peck in the lips-area without removing their masks. 

Both Harris and Emhoff are vaccinated against coronavirus and new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance says those vaccinated do not need to wear face coverings while outside with each other.

The move is yet another confusing display on what the White House is recommending vaccinated Americans do in reference to wearing face coverings in public.
