- Earlier in the summer, he received a letter from the management in his apartment building threatening him with a a $500 fine
- They claimed he had been seen multiple times not wearing a mask in the building

Chris Cuomo was seen at the weekend in a New York City members’ club not wearing a mask and walking around to greet people as if he were the ‘mayor’, according to people who were there.
The CNN host, who had COVID-19 earlier this year, had already been scolded by his apartment building management for not wearing a mask in common areas.
According to sources cited by Page Six on Monday, it did nothing to change his behavior over the weekend.
Those sources say he was at an unnamed members club, not wearing a mask and shaking people’s hands. He was reportedly with Brooke Shields’s husband Chris Henchy.

‘He was not social distancing and was walking around indoors, shaking hands and greeting people without a mask.
‘He was just hanging with Brooke Shields’ husband.
‘It’s a double standard when his brother [Gov. Andrew Cuomo] is attacking the restaurant industry and implementing all these senseless rules,’ the source said.
It comes after he was threatened with a $500 fine for not wearing a mask in his apartment building.
The letter was sent to Cuomo on August 6 but was recently leaked to Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
It stated that Cuomo had been seen several times in his building not wearing a mask.

Cuomo had COVID earlier this year and filmed much of his quarantine for his CNN show, including emerging from his basement after 2 weeks. He has since spent much of his time on-air criticizing Republicans
‘You have been observed entering and exiting the building and riding the elevator without the required face coverings,’ the letter reads.
Gov. Cuomo made it the law to wear masks in New York in April
‘Even though staff members have asked you to comply with this requirement, you have refused to do so,’ the letter read.
Cuomo, who has spent much of the summer in the Hamptons, has not addressed the letter.
His representatives at CNN did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s inquiries on Monday.
His behavior flouts the laws his own brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, put in place in April.
They also contradict advice Cuomo himself has given on his CNN show, where he has routinely criticized Trump for not taking the virus more seriously.
Cuomo and his wife Cristina both had COVID earlier in the year.
He filmed his show from his basement throughout his quarantine and also filmed himself emerging from it.
