According to Fox News, a band that plays at weddings posted a video of Tlaib dancing at the wedding to its Instagram story.
The outlet notes that the band also tagged the location of the wedding, which showed it was at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn, which is in Wayne County, Michigan.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Wayne County is currently experiencing a “substantial” level of virus transmission.
The CDC currently recommends that fully vaccinated people in areas of “substantial” or “high” transmission wear a mask indoors.

In a video posted on Twitter on Sunday, Paul said, “It’s time for us to resist. They can’t arrest all of us. They can’t keep all of your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed.”
“We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say, ‘No. Not again,'” he added.
