San Francisco mayor parties at nightclub, breaches her own mask mandate

San Francisco Democratic Mayor London Breed appears to have forgotten the strict rules she has instated herself to protect people during the pandemic. A photo turned up on social media showing the mayor at the Black Cat Nightclub smiling and celebrating with friends Wednesday night, according to The Blaze. No masks were in sight.

What are the details?

The Black Cat Nightclub's Instagram page posted a photo with Breed while having a good time with a group of friends, as the outlet points out.

The photo was later taken down, but it was reposted, and it shows her without a mask, thus in breach of her own COVID-19 rules which say that everyone has to wear masks indoors except while you’re eating or drinking, even if you have taken the vaccine shots.

The San Francisco mayor was caught on camera as she danced and sang without a mask. And she didn’t have food or a drink in her hand.

“She's been very clear that everybody needs to do their part, we're not out of the woods. San Francisco's rules have been very restrictive, and I don't see her playing her part in that photo,” Danielle Rabkin, Crossfit Golden Gate Gym Owner, said.

The mayor’s press office didn’t reply to requests for comment on the issue.

“In early August, she emphasized the need for the city to bring back its indoor mask mandate. ‘We don't want to shut down this city or this country any longer than we have to. Our economy and our livelihood, and our kids going back to school, and everything in between depends on it,’ she said.

In a news release about the mandate, the mayor's office clearly spelled out the rules, stating, ‘The orders require all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings, with limited exceptions,’” according to KNTV.

“She feels like it's fine and safe to remove her mask, so then let that be the rule for everybody. You're not impervious to COVID any more than I am, so let the rules for you be the same as the rules for me,” Rabkin added.
