Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) was seen dining in New York City just two days after testing positive for COVID-19.

According to the New York Post, “Palin, 57, ate at Elio’s on the Upper East Side in a heated outside structure” on Wednesday.

It added that the restaurant confirmed former vice presidential contender dined there on Wednesday.

One employee told the Post, “S*** happens! People come to eat, we are not the border police.”

Elio’s manager, Luca Guaitolini, said in a statement, “In accordance with the vaccine mandate and to protect our staff, we seated her outdoors … We are a restaurant open to the public, and we treat civilians the same.”

Palin is not vaccinated and said in 2021 that it would “be over my dead body that I’ll have to get a shot.” She tested positive for the virus on Monday.

A video captured Palin dining with others:

A video captured Palin leaving the restaurant, and someone can be heard asking, “Ms. Palin, do you have any comment about dining while you’re Covid positive?”

She did not respond.

According to Gothamist, Palin dined at a separate restaurant on Tuesday.

A City Hall spokesperson urged “any New Yorker who came into contact with Ms. Palin to get tested, just as we encourage all New Yorkers to get tested regularly, especially those who believe they may have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.”

Patrons of restaurants in New York City are required to provide proof of vaccination. However, Gothamist notes that the “requirement does not extend to outdoor dining.”

Additionally, Elio’s will reportedly not be fined for allowing Palin to dine there because it was not witnessed by an inspector.

She caused a stir over the weekend after she dined indoors at Elio’s.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that “people with COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days and if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms are resolving (without fever for 24 hours).”

After that, it recommends that they wear a mask for another five days.
