Dr Fauci is now saying what none of us want to hear. It's possible we may be asked to wear face coverings into 2022. On a more upbeat note the good doc says that we can expect to see a significant improvement in normalcy by the end of 2021.
Speaking in terms of virus levels he says:
"when it goes way down and the overwhelming majority of people in the population are vaccinated, then I would feel comfortable saying ... we don't need to have masks".
