U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to get an early start on New Year’s weekend Thursday, according to a report.
The New York Democrat was seen, maskless and drink in hand, as she dined outside in Miami Beach, Florida, the National Review reported. The congresswoman and a companion were spotted at Doraku Sushi and Izakaya, the report said.
Ocasio-Cortez’s pre-holiday trip came as her native New York City was dealing with a record number of first responders calling out sick heading into New Year’s Eve. More than 20% of the city’s police officers and 30% of paramedics were out sick Thursday, city officials said.
Meanwhile, incoming New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who will be sworn in Saturday, said Thursday that he plans to keep in place the current coronavirus restrictions of outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio, including a vaccination mandate for entering local businesses.
