On Saturday, President Joe Biden was pictured shopping in a store without wearing a face mask, despite the business requiring masks.
Besides the business, the island of Nantucket recently imposed an indoor mask mandate.
This incident was first reported by Fox News.

“The maskless store outing came as Biden spent Thanksgiving with his family at the home of a private-equity billionaire David Rubinstein in Nantucket, where he attended a tree-lighting ceremony and his motorcade got a middle finger from a man on a porch,” the Post noted.
The Post added, “The president, who received a booster shot in September, in August called for a three-month nationwide mask mandate, and earlier this year stressed that face-covering will be necessary through 2021.”
