California governor Gavin Newsom has been ridiculed online after urging diners to wear their masks in between bites.
The Democratic governor’s office tweeted on October 3: ‘Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend? Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.’
Three cartoon images then showed a diner in their mask at a table before a second picture of the person eating without a mask. In the third image the diner was back in their face covering.
But the post also warned: ‘Minimize the number of times you take your mask off.’
