Gov. Ralph Northam Caught Without A Mask At Virginia Beach


Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam was reportedly caught without a face mask at Virginia Beach Saturday as the Democrat weighs a statewide order requiring citizens to wear masks.

Northam was seen on the beach reviewing security at the beach without a face covering, local outlet NBC12 reported Saturday. The governor’s office later explained in a statement that Northam was “not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.”

“The Governor has repeatedly encouraged wearing face coverings inside or when social distancing is impossible,” Northam’s office said. “He was outside today and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.”

Northam’s office said the governor “wanted to check beach enforcement and make sure they were following the rules, which they were largely.”

Photos posted on Twitter appear to show an unmasked Northam standing within six feet of other maskless people on the beach.
