With the Thanksgiving holiday less than a week away, the famous Dr. Anthony Fauci is back in action, ready to end the fun for everybody. While the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Fauci has come under fire for his constant back and forth when it comes to the right way to fight COVID-19. And now, as the holidays are upon us, the doctor is advising people to be masked while indoors unless they are confident that everybody in the room has been fully vaccinated.
It is unclear if Dr. Fauci knows that studies show the vaccine doesn’t stop COVID-19 from spreading. Just a couple of weeks ago, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tested positive for COVID-19, but remember, if everybody is vaccinated – it is fine.
Speaking on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes”, the host asked, “In terms of people gathering and the sort of colder weather, which is coming, and we’re seeing cases go up. I keep telling everyone I know this, like, prepare yourself. There will be cases going up this winter. If people are going to get together for gatherings like Thanksgiving, how should they be thinking about it? My instinct is, you know, everyone should be vaccinated, and you should get boosted if you can. Maybe test the day of. How do you think about it?”
Giving the world his wisdom, Fauci answered, “The situation is — and let’s just take a scenario, you have a family setting. You’re vaccinated. Your family members are vaccinated, and even if the children who are yet too young to get vaccinated, go have an enjoyable Thanksgiving in your home. You don’t need to wear a mask.”
Dr. Fauci added, “The situation is that when you are outside in indoor congregant settings where you do not know the vaccine status of people, then you should be wearing a mask. If you’re in a situation where everybody is vaccinated, then you really don’t need to wear a mask. If you’re at home, that’s the situation. That’s the reason why the CDC says when you’re in congregant settings, and you have no idea who’s around you, there’s no requirement for vaccination. That’s when you need to wear a mask. If you know people are vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask.”
And acting as if his word is law, the doctor concluded, “Anybody who starts saying you shouldn’t be wearing a mask because we don’t know if masks work, that’s been put to bed. Masks work, period. There are many studies that now show that. Just like the recent study that has come out from the British study, just literally today it came out.”
