    “I’m wearing a mask (and voting!) for my country, my community, and my grandchildren,” she continued.

    The post had over 200,000 likes on Instagram early Saturday afternoon.

    It's unclear where the photo was taken, but Clinton lives in Chappaqua, New York. The state had more than 300,000 coronavirus cases as of Saturday.

    The former secretary of state and 2016 presidential candidate endorsed Joe Biden for president earlier this week.

    Clinton made her announcement during a Biden campaign town hall to discuss the coronavirus and its effect on women. Without mentioning Trump by name, Clinton assailed the Republican president and hailed Biden's experience and temperament in comparison.

    “Just think of what a difference it would make right now if we had a president who not only listened to the science ... but brought us together,” said Clinton, who lost the 2016 election despite leading Trump in the national popular vote. “Think of what it would mean if we had a real president,” Clinton continued, rather than a man who “plays one on TV.”
