Fauci says school should be open 'full blast' five days a week in the fall
May 17, 2021
Anthony Fauci, President Biden’s chief medical adviser, said Thursday that schools in the fall should be open “full blast” five days a week after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 resume life without masks or other restrictions.
When asked by host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” if he agreed with CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and the president of the American Federation of Teachers that schools in the fall should be 100 percent open and in-person five days a week, Fauci said he did.
“Yeah. I agree with that. I believe the schools should be open five days, full blast, just the way it was before," Fauci said. "We really have to do that by the time we get to the fall."
