WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is getting heat over a solo hair salon visit in San Francisco at a time when California businesses are limited by concern over coronavirus. But she says she was complying with the rules as presented to her by the salon.

Footage aired by Fox News Channel shows Pelosi, her mask around her neck rather than on her face, walking through the establishment. A stylist follows her wearing a mask.

The salon owner said she rents chairs to stylists, and one let her know that Pelosi wanted a wash and a blow dry.

Outdoor haircuts are allowed, but indoor salons have not reopened.
