Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) faced backlash on Thursday after declaring he’d no longer wear a face mask in the U.S. Capitol or on the Senate floor.
Cruz told CNN he was ditching the mask because he and “everybody working in the Senate” have received COVID-19 vaccinations.
But that isn’t the case. Not all senators, aides or journalists working in the Senate have gotten the jabs.
Cruz also referred to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, which he claimed says “small groups, particularly with people who were vaccinated, don’t need to wear masks,” per CNN.
It does say people who have been fully vaccinated can “visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with other fully vaccinated people of any age” and “visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with one household of unvaccinated people who are not at risk for severe illness.”

@tedcruz is a selfish, self-centered jerk. He doesn't care about anyone but himself.— Missy Stephens (@mlstephens68) April 16, 2021
After 13 months of a major pandemic, our Senators STILL don't understand the basic concept of "setting a precedent for other people."— A Big Dumb Idiot Man (@BigDumbIdiotMan) April 15, 2021
It's really not that complicated.
@tedcruz - Even if you’re #vaccinated you can still pass #COVID-19 that’s lands in your nose and stays alive for 72 hours. You’re just a #pathetic #selfish little #snowflake #POS #TeddyBoyCancunCruz. You will get #Lysoled if you come near me without a mask!— Donny Deplorable???????? (@DonnyDeplorable) April 16, 2021
