Michigan Attorney General Posts Photo Of Herself Violating CDC Face Mask Guidelines

Dana Nessel and Congresswoman Haley Stevens both appear maskless

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel posted a photo of herself on Twitter attending a wedding in which she appears to be in violation of current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention face mask guidelines.

Nessel tweeted the photograph on Friday of herself and U.S. Rep. Haley Stevens indoors without masks at the wedding celebration in a room full of people. None of the people who were visible in the photo were wearing masks. A media report stated that Stevens was married Friday in Shelby Township.

The CDC recommended as of Aug. 13: ‘If you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.”

From Aug. 27 through Sept. 2, the CDC has designated all of Michigan as being in a state of “substantial or high transmission.”

Nessel’s office did not immediate respond to an email seeking comment.
