Dr. Anthony Fauci says the US government will soon update guidance on wearing face masks in public, and that relaxing some rules is ‘common sense.’
The nation’s top infectious disease expert said that the Centers for Disease Control will update its guidance.
‘I mean, if you are a vaccinated person, wearing a mask outdoors, I mean, obviously, the risk is minuscule.’
‘Obviously the risk is really very low, particularly if you’re vaccinated,’ Fauci said of people conducting outdoor activities during ABC’s This Week.
When asked if the country was ‘heading towards normal,’ Fauci said that ‘in some respects, we are.’
Fauci added: ‘It really is a challenge. We have vaccines now.
Which is bad news for Fauci, who likely senses that his 15 minutes are coming to end: The mask is slipping, Dr Fauci…He’s a cable-news star first and a scientist second.
