Says it will be June at the earliest before masks can come off, and ONLY if people take the vaccine
by Steve Watson
Appearing on CNN Thursday, Dr Anthony Fauci declared that face masks are here to stay unless enough Americans get the coronavirus vaccination, and even then it will take at least six months before the masks can be left behind.
Speaking to Chris Cuomo, Fauci was asked if the masks could come off, to which he replied “Well, the answer is not unless you get the overwhelming majority of the country vaccinated and protected and get that umbrella of what we call herd immunity.”
“We as a nation need to continue to wear the mask, to keep the physical distance, to avoid crowds. We’re not through with this just because we’re starting a vaccine program.”
