America’s COVID Czar Dr. Anthony Fauci declared on Sunday that masks were not ever going to stop being recommended, as they remain “an important tool” to preventing spread, regardless of the vaccination status of any individual or region.
Fauci made several appearances over the weekend on Leftist propaganda networks, continuing to peddle vaccines and boosters and insisting that masks were still required since a vaccine is apparently not sufficient to prevent spread.
Fauci, questioned by reporters, timidly admitted that if individuals were vaccinated, boosted, constantly masked, and were “prudent” during their travels, that they could reasonably enjoy an indoor gathering with their family members this Christmas. But he sternly warned against attending gatherings where “you do not know what their vaccination status is.”
Fauci: people shouldn’t “do things like go to gatherings where there are people who you do not know what their vaccination status is."

Fauci added that it’s recommended that even fully vaccinated and masked individuals get tested for COVID-19 before attending indoor events. Fauci recommended “point of care” tests that provide results in “15 minutes.” He said that if all these protocols are followed, that families “can feel quite comfortable” having indoor gatherings throughout the holiday season. Even then, Fauci said that following such arduous procedures does not make a situation “100% risk-free,” but believes that it’s a good start.
When asked about governors such as Democrat governor Jared Polis of Colorado refusing to reimpose mask mandates on his pandemic-weary constituents, Fauci redirected the conversation, saying that people should rely more heavily on vaccines than masks if they’re going to choose just one, and added that if people haven’t yet been vaccinated “it’s your own darn fault.”
The reporter asked Fauci if he believed the pandemic to be “a crisis of the unvaccinated.”
Fauci said that unvaccinated individuals were at great danger, but also said that vaccinated individuals need to continue to wear masks to reduce the likelihood of spreading the disease to others, and that it offers some protection for themselves. “You can do both and should do both,” he said.
Fauci also said that he believes that air travel will never be the same, saying that he saw no future where masks wouldn’t be required for plane travel.
Q: Do you think we'll be able to fly without masks again?
