Asked on CNN if he thinks Americans will need to wear masks next year, Fauci said, “You know, I think that’s possible. It depends on what you mean by normalcy.”
Fauci believes that by the end of this year “there will be a significant degree of normalcy” after the “terrible burden” of the last year. “When we get to the fall and winter, by the end of the year, I agree with President Biden that we are approaching a level of normalcy,” said immunologist Anthony Fauci, who is also Joe Biden’s medical adviser.
Wearing a mask is essential for slowing the spread of the virus, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Biden administration has insisted more than the Trump administration on wearing masks, and last month the president signed an order requiring people to wear masks by those traveling between states and the federal government. Biden even challenged Americans to wear masks in the first 100 days of his presidency to reduce the spread of the virus.
