AOC says she will keep wearing a mask despite being vaccinated

According to Fox News, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) told her Instagram followers that despite being fully vaccinated with the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, she will continue wearing a mask in “shared indoor public spaces.” 

“NYC got hit so hard that I think some of us are going to take time adjusting as we feel comfortable… Personally I’m going to keep wearing my mask in shared indoor public spaces like elevators, subway, grocery store, etc.,” the New York Democrat shared on her Instagram story. She told her followers, “if you want to keep wearing your mask then do it.” AOC added that she will continue to wear a mask whenever 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 also joked that a mask “is a nice accessory when you don’t want to do your makeup.” Her home state has not yet lifted its mask mandate.
