North Carolina Republicans continue to defy governor's orders by holding large party without masks

Raleigh -- North Carolinaís Republicans continued in December to defy the governorís order as well as public health recommendations by gathering without masks at a large holiday party featuring new Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn.

The N.C. Federation of Young Republicans held a Christmas party on Dec. 18 in Carthage, according to 171 photographs posted on Facebook on Dec. 24.

Like the GOPís other gatherings in December, including one on Dec. 5, the people in attendance did not wear masks, shared microphones, shook hands and posed for photos with their arms around one another. Those are practices health officials discourage as the coronavirus pandemic surges to new highs.

After The News & Observer published this article, the N.C. Federation of Young Republicans released a statement saying the organization conducted temperature checks at the door and advised members to stay home if they were sick. The organization also said they told attendees to wear a mask when they werenít seated or actively eating or drinking.
