US Will Return To Normalcy by Next Mother’s Day, Says Expert

  • Dr. Anthony Fauci says federal guidance on wearing face coverings indoors may change soon.
  • The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be updating its guidance almost in real time, as more Americans get vaccinated.
  • The CDC relaxed its guidance last month on wearing masks outdoors, but still advises both vaccinated and unvaccinated people to still wear masks in indoor public spaces.

A CNN news source by Lauren Mascarenhas and Christina Maxouris states that it may be time to relax but indoor face mask is mandatory.

Face mask should be relaxed

Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration, said face mask requirements should be relaxed now that the Covid-19 risk is dropping.

“Certainly outdoors, we shouldn’t be putting limits on gatherings anymore,” Gottlieb said.

“The states where prevalence is low, vaccination rates are high, and we have good testing in place, we’re identifying infections, I think we could start lifting these restrictions indoors as well, on a broad basis.”

Lifting pandemic restrictions when they are no longer necessary will make it easier for public health officials to reimplement them if cases rise again, such as a potential winter surge.

More people get vaccinated 

Sunday on ABC News, Fauci was asked whether it’s time to start relaxing indoor masks requirements. Fauci replied, “I think so, and I think you’re going to probably be seeing that as we go along, and as more people get vaccinated.”

The US probably will be back to normal by next Mother’s Day, if enough people get vaccinated against Covid-19, Fauci said on ABC News.

“We’re at 58% today. So we’ve got a path ahead of us,” he said.

He noted that President Joe Biden set a goal of having 70% of adults vaccinated by July 4.
