On Sunday, during an appearance on CBS’s Face The Nation, Anthony Fauci said that children should wear masks while playing with each other.
“When the children go out into the community, you want them to continue to wear masks when they’re interacting with groups or multiple households,” said Fauci.
Fauci also stated that he expects the US to open up more when the summer comes around because the vaccination programs are moving faster than expected.
“We now have 3 to 3.5 million vaccinations each day. If we keep up with that pace, invariably, that’s going to drive the rate and the level of infections per day to a much much lower level,” said Fauci, adding that he hopes there will be “a good degree of flexibility during the summer.”
