Jill Biden joked that she felt "naked" not wearing a face mask after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dropped its mask mandate for fully vaccinated people.
Biden was visiting a vaccine clinic at a high school in West Virginia on Thursday, the same day the CDC announced that people who have been fully vaccinated can take off their masks indoors and outdoors, in most settings.
Biden told reporters: "We feel naked!" before pausing and adding "I didn’t mean it that way," according to The New York Times, DailyMail.com, and the Financial Times.
Biden said that she learned of the new rule during her journey to West Virginia, and said she had brought a mask that matched her clothes.
She said, according to DailyMail.com: "We just learned as we got off the plane. And here I had gone out to buy one that was coordinated with my outfit, so you can’t win."
