Northam issues statement after getting slammed for not wearing mask at Virginia Beach

Virginia Governor Northam faced criticism on social media after being spotted at Virginia Beach without wearing a mask.

Henry Graff of WWBT tweeted Saturday:

JUST IN: Statement from @GovernorVA on not wearing a mask today while in Virginia Beach.

“The Governor has repeatedly encouraged wearing face coverings inside or when social distancing is impossible. He was outside today and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.” @NBC12

However Northam clearly was within 6 feet of many people as the video shows.
