Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) violated her own city’s mask mandate on Sunday, posting a picture of herself maskless at Game 4 of the WNBA Finals on Sunday.

“What a moment. Congrats champs! A first but not the last for @chicagosky,” the Democrat posted to Twitter alongside a picture of herself at the game, maskless, amid a masked crowd:

A first but not the last for @chicagosky.

In August, the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced the reinstitution of the city’s mask mandate, extending to all individuals ages two and older with limited exceptions, regardless of vaccination status:

Masks are required in all indoor public settings, including bars and restaurants, gyms, common areas of condos and multi-residential buildings, and private clubs. Similar to previous mask mandates, masks can be removed at restaurants, bars and other eating/drinking establishments by patrons when they are actively eating and drinking. Masks can also be removed for certain activities that require their removal, such as beard shaves or facials. Additionally, masks can be removed by employees in settings that are not open to the public, if employees are static and maintaining at least six feet from all other individuals (office cubicles, for example).

Lightfoot was not eating or drinking, as the maskless photo shows.
