Senior COVID Advisor Anthony Fauci threw more cold-water on Americans hoping to return to normalcy this fall, saying he disapproves of college football games and other large-scale events both indoors and outdoors.
“Big crowds in stadiums, not clear about who was vaccinated, recommendations for masks. Is this kind of behavior going to get us on the other side of this?” asked CNN’s Jim Sciutto.
“We could be stuck in outbreak mode. You’re going to see a lot more local mandates. The rule is going to be: If you want to participate, you’ve got to be vaccinated,” said Fauci.
“When you look at crowds like that, do you approve of that?” pressed the anchor.
“I don’t think it’s smart. Outdoors is always better than indoors, but you should be vaccinated,” fired-back the senior White House official.

Fauci’s comments come days after Joe Biden urged all private business owners to mandate the vaccine for employees.
“Today I’m calling on more companies in the private sector to step-up with vaccine requirements that will reach millions more people. If you’re a business leader, a non-profit leader, a local leader, who has been waiting for full FDA approval to require vaccinations, I’m calling on you now to do it,” said the President.

'ROUTINE ERROR': 6,700 North Carolina Residents ‘Incorrectly Told They Have Coronavirus’ via Text
Nearly 7,000 residents in North Carolina were told via text message last week that they tested positive for the Coronavirus despite not actually having contracted the disease.
“More than 6,700 individuals in Mecklenburg County in North Carolina were told in a text message sent from Mecklenburg County Health Department on Friday that they tested positive for COVID-19 and over 500 people were told through a county email that they were also infected with the novel coronavirus. But the results were incorrect due to a technical error by Health Space, the company they use for contact tracing, according to a statement on the county’s website,” reports Fox News.
“An error during routine maintenance last Friday resulted in a county data vendor sending erroneous texts and email messages to people saying they were positive for COVID-19,” the statement on the county website said.
“Very quickly we began to work with the vendor to understand the issue and make sure that it did not continue. Once corrected we were told that 6,727 text messages and 541 emails were sent to individuals who were already in their system. We then worked with the vendor to send a corrected text/email to all that received the erroneous one,” the email stated in part.
