Vice President Mike Pence doesn’t seem to be taking the threat of the coronavirus seriously. On Tuesday, Pence made a visit to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota where he was told to wear a mask while visiting patients and officials.

Pence’s visit was to check on coronavirus testing.

According to POLITICO reporter Dan Diamond, Pence has a history of foregoing wearing a mask in settings where he’s required to.

And that’s exactly what happened on Tuesday.

In a tweet this morning, the Mayo Clinic clarified that it had indeed asked Pence to wear a mask at the facility. The tweet has since been deleted.

“Mayo Clinic had informed @VP of the masking policy prior to his arrival today,” the tweet had read.
