CNN's Chris Cuomo was spotted at a private members club in downtown New York City "shaking hands and greeting people without a mask," despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"He was not social distancing and was walking around indoors, shaking hands and greeting people without a mask. He was just hanging with Brooke Shields' husband. It's a double standard when his brother [Gov. Andrew Cuomo] is attacking the restaurant industry and implementing all these senseless rules," a source told the New York Post's Page Six on Monday.
Another source claimed the anchor was "acting like he was mayor" when not seated.
Fox News recently reported Cuomo was warned by the management of his apartment building for not wearing "the required face coverings" while in public areas of his building.
"You have been observed entering and exiting the building and riding the elevator without the required face coverings," reads the letter, which is dated Aug. 6.
"Even though staff members have asked you to comply with this requirement, you have refused to do so. 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 tested positive for the coronavirus in March, which made him one of the first American public figures to be diagnosed with COVID-19. He recently criticized President Donald Trump for making public appearances without a mask while recovering from the virus himself.
"We may have grown up in the same place, but we are very different people," Cuomo said last week. "But this I can relate to. I got my wife and son sick just like he did. But with me, it crushed me. It left me ashamed and super sensitive to keeping people safe."
