WASHINGTON — Amid continuing confusion and debate over mask wearing, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top medical adviser to the Biden administration, emphasized that the time has come to let up on wearing face coverings in some situations.

“If you are going into a completely crowded situation, where people are essentially falling all over each other, then you wear a mask. But at any other time, if you’re vaccinated and you’re outside, put aside your mask. You don’t have to wear it,” he said in a television interview on Thursday morning.

His characteristically blunt comments came amid questions about whether the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is misinterpreting scientific studies and exaggerating the risk of outdoor transmission.

Fauci, who began his career battling the HIV/AIDS epidemic, has typically urged caution. But he also recognizes that exhaustion is setting in, particularly around the issue of wearing masks.

“We've got to make that transition,” Fauci said Thursday. Only days before, he predicted that mask wearing could become “seasonal” in the United States, as it already is in some East Asian countries.
