Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Thursday that he will no longer be wearing a mask at the Capitol since he is fully vaccinated.
"At this point I've been vaccinated. Everybody working in the Senate has been vaccinated," Cruz told CNN. "CDC has said in small groups, particularly with people who were vaccinated, don't need to wear masks."
Cruz's totally logical take on the matter did not comfort The Hill. In the very next paragraph, it reminded readers that the CDC says vaccinated people should still wear masks "in large groups of people." But, as the highlighted language shows, Cruz had been specific that he was talking about go mask-free in "small groups."
