ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos was caught on camera venturing outside of his home without a mask on, in direct violation of New York State’s mask requirement.
This in spite of the fact that he recently revealed that he had tested positive for the Coroanvirus, potentially putting everyone he comes in contact with at risk.
As The New York Post reports:
George Stephanopoulos had already irked Hamptons residents by going out in public after his wife contracted COVID-19 — but now the “Good Morning America” anchor is battling the virus himself and is ignoring mandates to wear a mask in public.
The pale-looking ABC newsman was spotted by The Post on Monday afternoon taking a stroll in East Hampton, engrossed in a long conversation on his mobile phone with a mask hanging around his neck.
One outraged witness said Stephanopoulos — who announced he tested positive for the virus last week after his wife, Ali Wentworth, contracted it — was seen leaving his Hamptons home in a pair of shorts and walking for about a mile along East Hampton lanes, with his mask down the entire time.
