President Joe Biden was spotted in a store without a face mask, despite the fact that the store required masks.
Biden, who has actively been encouraging Americans to wear masks, was seen maskless inside Murrays Toggery Shop in Nantucket, Massachusetts, Saturday, Fox News reported.
Biden had his mask around his neck rather than covering his mouth or nose. The store had a visible sign outside that read, “Required face covering,” the outlet reported.

Nantucket had recently re-imposed their mask mandate due to a recent uptick in COVID-19 cases, the New York Post reported.

Biden has been spotted without his masks on several occasions. He was recently seen at an upscale Washington, D.C., restaurant walking around without a mask. He was also seen in November mingling without his mask and only putting it on for a photo-op, Fox News reported.
The president called for a 3-month nationwide mask mandate in August, claiming that the initiative could save 40,000 people, the New York Post reported.
