President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden flouted Washington, D.C.’s indoor mask mandate Saturday night when they were filmed walking maskless through a high-end Italian restaurant.
The Bidens were caught on camera leaving Fiola Mare in Georgetown with their masked-up Secret Service agents in tow, according to videos posted on social media.
Biden could be seen carrying his mask in both hands as he left the pricey seafood establishment overlooking the Potomac River.
His wife did not appear to be carrying her mask as she left.
Wearing masks inside is mandatory in D.C. after Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser reinstated an indoor mask mandate back in July when the delta variant started to surge.
The Bidens also violated the restaurant’s own mask policy, which is in line with the city’s mandate – regardless of a person’s vaccination status.
“Per CDC guidance and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s executive order, all individuals over age 2 are required to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be always worn while in our restaurants, except while eating and drinking. Thank you for understanding,” the restaurant says on its website.
