The most powerful elected Democrat, Nancy Pelosi, who criticized President Donald Trump for not wearing a mask, was photographed without a face mask in a San Francisco hair salon. Footage received by Fox News on Monday showed a House spokesman in the district violating the city’s guidelines for preventing coronavirus. Hair salons are banned from opening under the San Francisco pandemic orders. Ms. Pelosi, who always wears masks in public, often advises Republicans to “listen to the science” about this pandemic.
However, Fox News footage showed him walking across eSalon with a mask over his neck rather than his mouth. A California Democratic spokesman said he was unaware he was violating virus prevention guidelines in his city. This work was shown to the speaker on Monday for participation and told him that the city allows them to have one customer at a time,” said spokesman Drew Hamill in a statement.
He added: “The President of Parliament has followed the rules presented to him by this institution.”
Ms. Pelosi previously cited guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, which recommended that Americans wear face masks in public, especially when evacuation procedures are difficult.
Following Monday’s appointment, a House spokesman appeared on MSNBC with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

He told the network that Mr. Trump “hit the flag in the face” last week by allowing the public not to be invited into the White House lawn masks to attend his speech at Republican Congress. Salon owner Erica Kious told Fox News that she was renting the chairs to a stylist. He told her that Ms. Pelosi’s assistant had called her and said her boss wanted to wash and dry himself.
“It was a slap in the face that came in, you know, he felt like he could just do his stuff while no one else could get in and I couldn’t work,” Ms. Kious told Cable Network. According to a recent Yelp data study, more than 5,000 businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area have closed since March, more than 2,000 of them permanently during the pandemic.

A House spokesman had previously said that if they “just listen to the scientists,” Republicans can create the conditions to safely reopen their doors.
Ms. Pelosi has also repeatedly criticized Mr. Trump’s decision to ignore the mask, label it a “coward”, and say, “Real men wear masks.” The coronavirus outbreak infected more than six million people in the United States, while about 185,000 deaths were recorded.
