Fauci warns parents about children playing maskless
Dr. Anthony Fauci is again issuing another warning against socializing and COVID-19. This time on Sunday’s “Face the Nation” where he warned parents that children should not play together unless they are wearing masks before being vaccinated.
“The children can clearly wind up getting infected,” Fauci told CBS anchor Margaret Brennan.
Fauci has been criticized by many lawmakers and opponents for his continuous suggestions and warnings about COVID-19.
Remember in February when Fauci said masks, double masks and other virus mitigation efforts may last until 2022. Well, he and the administration don’t appear to be right about that either.
“You know, I think it is possible that [continuing to wear masks is] the case. And, again, it really depends on what you mean by normality,” Fauci said on CNN’s “State of the Union” in February.
On the recent CBS interview he said, “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,” he said.
As reported by the New York Post, Fauci said adults who have received the vaccine may not need to mask when around each other, but since children are not eligible for the shot, they should still mask.
Fauci said it’s “conceivable” that kids will be able to return to playgrounds and campgrounds this summer.
