Pence put on a mask after criticism over appearing without it

The Vice President appeared in a mask at the General Motors plant where they make ventilators.

US Vice President Mike Pence put on a mask when visiting a factory for manufacturing artificial ventilation devices in Indiana after he was criticized for appearing without a cover at the famous Mayo clinic, despite the safety rules in force there in connection with the coronavirus.

Pence visited the General Motors plant in Kokomo, Indiana, accompanied by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and concerned Executive Director Mary Barra.

Pence, who once served as Governor of Indiana, previously said that he does not have to wear a mask because he regularly tests for coronavirus.

According to the administration of the Mayo clinic, Pence was told that due to the coronavirus pandemic, masks are mandatory for all visitors, employees, and patients in its building in Rochester, Minnesota.
