Senior White House advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci threw more cold-water on Americans hoping to return to a normal way of life Sunday; saying he “can’t give an exact date” when the CDC will endorse indoor wedding receptions.
“When can people plan an indoor wedding?” asked MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.
“That’s a good question. That’s going to be in a reasonable period of time,” responded Fauci. “I can’t give you that exact date because it’s going to depend on the level of infection in the community.”

“If we plateau and stay at 60,000 new infections a day, you can make no prediction. If we keep going down, when we’re there, I think you’re going to see weddings in the normal way that we’ve seen them. It’s not going to happen if you have a surge,” he added.

DIRE PREDICTION: Fauci Warns Americans of ‘Another Spike’ of CoVID Cases Despite Vaccines
Senior White House advisor Doctor Anthony Fauci warned Americans of an impending spike in CoVID cases; saying there’s simply too much “viral activity” occurring despite the distribution of tens of millions of vaccines.
“We’ve just now recently experienced the worst surge,” Fauci said. “The issue is that we are starting to plateau. That plateau is about 60,000 to 70,000 cases a day. When you have that much viral activity in a plateau, it almost invariably means that you are at risk of another spike.
“Many countries in Europe have seen just that — over the past week, an increase in cases by 9 percent, something we desperately want to avoid,” he added.
“Many of us will recall very, very vividly — in the end of the winter and the beginning of the spring — we had a surge that was dominated by the New York metropolitan area. After the surge, what we came down to was a baseline of about 20,000 cases per day. That is a very high baseline, relatively speaking,” he said.

DOCTOR’S ORDERS! Fauci Rips Texas Decision to End Mask Mandates as ‘Just Inexplicable’
Senior White House advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci threw more cold-water on America’s push to return to normality Thursday morning; calling Texas’ decision to rescind the mask-mandate “inexplicable.”
“It’s just inexplicable why you would want to pull back now. I understand the need to want to get back to normality, but you’re only going to set yourself back if you just completely push aside the public health guidelines,” said Fauci.
“That’s a very high baseline of new infections each day in the United States,” he added.
