On Thursday, White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci said during a CNN town hall that he doesn’t think “we need to go to lockdown again and shelter in place.”

“I don’t think we need to go to lockdown again and shelter in place,” Fauci said. “There are situations, as I’ve mentioned to you before, in multiple interviews, where, when they were trying to open up a state or a city, that there were certain guidelines that were skipped over.”

Dr. Fauci: ‘I don’t think we need to go all the way back to lockdown’

“Maybe you’re in a phase two, and you need to pause and maybe go back to phase one,” Fauci continued. “That’s entirely conceivable and may be recommended. I don’t think we need to go all the way back to lockdown.”

Fauci’s guidelines

“And the reason I say that is that we’re learning more and more,” he went on. “If you do five fundamental principles, in any situation, one, wear a mask all the time, consistently, when you’re outside, and can be exposed.”

Fauci said, “Number two, keep physical distance. Number three, avoid bars or close bars if you can. Keep away from crowds, big congregations, and maintain hand hygiene.”

‘And we know when you do that, and states that have done that, they’ve actually flattened the surging curve and are starting to come down’

“Those are five not rocket science things that one can do,” the doctor added. “And we know when you do that, and states that have done that, they’ve actually flattened the surging curve and are starting to come down.”

“So, bottom line, right now, I don’t think we need to go to lockdown,” Fauci concluded.
