CNN host Chris Cuomo has been shamed and threatened with a fine by his building manager for disobeying social distancing regulations and walking through his residential complex without a mask.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson released a letter Cuomo’s building manager had sent to the CNN host on August 6, showcasing a number of complaints from other residents in the building.
Cuomo has allegedly been seen numerous times walking around the premises without a mask, in clear violation of health orders from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and building policy. “Dear Mr. Cuomo, as I’m sure you know, because of the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, on April 15, 2020 Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.17 which requires anyone over the age [of] two to wear a face mask or cloth that covers their mouth and nose while in a public space,” the letter stated, according to Carlson.
“You have been observed entering and exiting the building and riding the elevator without the required face coverings. Even though staff members have asked you to comply with this requirement, you have refused to do so,” the letter added. “This is a violation of the Executive Order, building policy, and places other residents and our staff at risk. There are no exceptions to this rule, and you are required to comply.”
Cuomo was threatened with a $500 fine if he continued to violate the building policy and the executive order. Cuomo has repeatedly lectured his viewers on his show for not wearing masks and resisting stay-at-home orders, calling lockdown protestors “fools” in a clip aired by Carlson on Fox News.
Carlson showed multiple clips of Cuomo berating members of the public that they should wear masks, stating “I wear a mask for you as much as for me.” and “You have to take care of other people in your community.”
Carlson also aired clips of Cuomo’s brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shaming those who are criticising the lockdown. In the clip, the Governor is seen promoting mask wearing and stating that it’s “disrespectful” of people not to wear masks and that “you could literally kill someone, you could literally kill someone because you didn’t want to wear a mask.”
