Nurses Denounce GOP Lawmaker For Wearing N95 Mask Upside During Vote To Reopen Businesses





A Pennsylvania nurses group has condemned GOP State Rep. Bob Brooks on Thursday for wearing a critically needed N95 mask upside down during a photo op taken “while voting to reopen businesses immediately, instead of working to get healthcare workers the PPE we need.”

The group Nurses of Pennsylvania took to Twitter on Thursday to denounce to the lawmaker, tweeting: “Meet #PALeg Rep. Bob Brooks (R-45). Here you can see Bob wearing an N95 mask upside down in the #PAHouse while voting to reopen businesses immediately, instead of working to get healthcare workers the PPE we need.”



Labor economist Mark Price tweeted: “PA Representative Bob Brooks @RepBobBrooks Wearing a N95 respirator mask upside down on the PA House floor. Brooks voted to send ALL non-essential PA workers back to work this week as ESSENTIAL PA nursing home workers pictured below are still wearing homemade masks.”

Many Twitter users noted that Brooks’s vote came as an ice rink in Pennsylvania had been refrozen so that it can be used as a morgue for the bodies of coronavirus victims, according to reports.
