Marjorie Taylor Greene responds to House mask rule changes
The Republican congresswoman has long taken issue with a mandate requiring face coverings be warn in the lower chamber of Congress.
"This is what I think of Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi's letter," Greene tweeted, alongside the hashtag #FreeYourFace.Greene said in the video:"You can't discriminate against people simply because they won't wear a mask."And today I refused to wear a mask on the House floor and I received a warning from Speaker Pelosi that lists the fines if I continue to refuse to wear a mask."
New guidance was sent out Friday by Congress' attending physician stating masks would no longer be required for fully vaccinated people in the House.This brings the House into line with new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control issued in May.
This stated that people who had been fully vaccinated could resume activities without wearing masks or distancing, except in areas where this was required by laws or regulations governing a specific area."If you haven't been vaccinated yet, find a vaccine," this said. headtopics.com
"Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance."
