Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that precautions implemented during the pandemic aren’t going away after a vaccine is distributed.
Fauci insisted that masks and social distancing were here to stay.
“Because even though for the general population it might be 90 to 95 percent effective, you don’t necessarily know for you how effective it is.”
Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said he would be among those who stay masked.
“I can feel more relaxed in essentially not having the stringency that we have right now. But I think abandoning it completely would not be a good idea,” Fauci said.
