(The Post Millennial) – President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill were photographed walking on Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on Tuesday night, both wearing masks, despite living together and being triple vaccinated.

Biden continues to wear a mask, despite there being no one within 10 yards of him, besides his wife and his dog. He has previously said it was a “patriotic duty” to do so.

“The President, 79, even continued to wear his mask after the First Lady, 70, took hers off. It’s not clear who Biden believed he was protecting or who he felt he needed protection from as the only other people on the beach, the secret service, didn’t come within 10 yards,” reports The Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, the CDC has publicly stated that masks are not necessary in outdoor settings, though one could be worn in areas with high case counts.

Biden even said in July of this year: “In a significant part of the country, you wouldn’t have to take one of these off, you don’t have to put one on, like in my home state of Delaware, where I lived in New Castle County, where I was yesterday in Pennsylvania, because people got vaccinated. They got vaccinated. They don’t need a mask when the majority, the vast majority of people got vaccinated.”
