Fauci: Removing Masks on Airplanes ‘Not Something We Should Even Be Considering’

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said that taking masks off while on an airplane is “not something we should even be considering.”

Fauci made the comments while on ABC’s This Week on Sunday and was responding to a question from Jonathan Karl on a vaccine mandate for domestic air travel.

“We want to make sure people keep their masks on. I think the idea of taking masks off, in my mind, is really not something we should even be considering,” Fauci said.
