A woman went above and beyond the call of duty by fashioning a face mask from her clothes to comply with Covid-19 regulations at an ice-cream parlour.
Captured on CCTV footage from the store, the red haired lady removes her dress and attempts to wrap it around her head into a make-shift face mask as she walks into the shop in the busy shopping area of Godoy Cruz, in the western Argentinian province of Mendoza, shortly after 10.30pm local time on Saturday night.
The scantily clad woman causes heads to turn as a father stood in the queue with his wife and two children is seen anxiously peering over his shoulder several times as she repositions her clothes around her face.
She stripped down to her bra and knickers and a pair of flip flops before trying to tie her black dress over her mouth after an earlier bid to get served fully-clothed failed.
The unnamed woman turned and left again after being ordered out of the premises by staff who insisted she had to wear a proper face covering – but not before telling them sarcastically: “Don’t ask me to put my face mask on, I’m doing it now.”
Local reports said the woman who went to extraordinary lengths to try to buy an ice cream was part of a group of 11 people who selected her to choose for everyone because of Covid regulations limiting the numbers who can enter business premises.

Her strip was recorded on the ice cream parlour’s CCTV cameras.

The same day health chiefs in the province of Mendoza, which includes the capital city of the same name as well as Godoy Cruz, confirmed the number of confirmed Covid positives since the start of the pandemic had reached more than 172,000.
