Fauci Says It Might Be Time to Relax Indoor Mask Requirements With more than 112 million Americans fully vaccinated to date, the CDC's guidance on indoor mask-wearing will likely change.

By Amanda Breen

On Sunday, Dr. Anthony Fauci said that federal guidance on indoor mask-wearing might be modified sooner rather than later, CNN reports.

When ABC News asked Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, if it was time to reconsider mask mandates for indoor activities, he said, "I think so, and I think you're going to probably be seeing that as we go along, and as more people get vaccinated."

Fauci also noted that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will continue to update its mask-requirement guidance "almost in real time" as increasing numbers of Americans receive the vaccine.
