While her husband has said he has no plans to wear a mask himself, the first lady’s account tweeted a photo of her modeling CDC guidance.
Melania Trump wore a mask in a new photo tweeted from the first lady’s account Thursday as part of a message urging fellow Americans to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended coronavirus guidelines.
“As the CDC continues to study the spread of COVID-19, they recommend people wear cloth face coverings in public settings where social distancing measures can be difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores and pharmacies. Remember, this does not replace the importance of social distancing. It’s another recommended guideline to keep us all safe,” she said in a video posted to Twitter just before the photo post.
The first lady has repeatedly shared similar public service announcements on CDC guidelines on Twitter, where she has 13.7 million followers, but this is the first time the former model has sported a face covering herself.
Her husband, President Donald Trump, has said he has no plans to use one.
