Social media is leading the criticism Senator Kirsten Gillibrand after she was spotted entering a restaurant without a mask.
Syracuse.com reports a video posted to a social media account belonging to Innovo Kitchen in Latham showing the Senator walking in without a mask, despite the state mandate requiring them in restaurants. Innovo Kitchen owner John LaPosta told the New York Post Gillibrand walked past the “masks required to enter” sign so fast employees didn’t have a chance to tell her to put one on.
“We all need to do our part to help stop the spread of Omicron and that means following state and local guidance,” Gillibrand said. “That includes me and I will do better going forward.”
