One day after saying he would isolate himself because of his exposure to the coronavirus, Trump campaign adviser Corey Lewandowski was photographed without a mask at a children’s flag-football match Saturday in Pelham, N.H.

The photo of the 2016 Trump campaign manager was shared with the Lowell Sun, a local newspaper, and confirmed by CNBC. The event attendee who took the photo, 77-year-old Jim Donohoe, told the Sun he didn’t see Lewandowski wearing a mask for about 20 minutes while he was observing him at the game, which had about 50 to 60 people in attendance.

Lewandowski told CBS News on Friday that he planned to avoid contact with others “out of an abundance of cautiousness” after campaigning with Trump in Minnesota the day before Trump announced he had tested positive. He also spent time with Trump the same day as Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination event in the Rose Garden.

Lewandowski spoke about the importance of wearing masks during his CBS interview but said “it’s up to individuals” to wear them.

“I’m a small government kind of guy, I don’t want the government mandating what I have to do,” he said.

Lewandowski will headline a Trump campaign event in Naples, Fla., with South Dakota Gov. Kristi L. Noem and former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi on Thursday.

Lewandowski and the Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment from The Post, the Sun or CNBC.
