Vice President Mike Pence said during a televised town hall on Sunday that he should have worn a mask while visiting the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota last week, in what was an apparent violation of the renowned health center’s stated policy.

Pence’s decision to go without a face covering on Tuesday was met with public rebuke, especially as others visiting with him donned masks. The clinic tweeted — and then deleted — a message saying it had informed Pence “of the masking policy prior to his arrival today.” The clinic’s website says “all patients, visitors and staff are required to wear a mask to decrease the risk of COVID-19 exposure.”
