(OPINION) Dr. Anthony Fauci informed Americans that they may want to bar unvaccinated relatives from visiting this holiday season according to Fox News.
On Tuesday, Fauci appeared on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber” to discuss holiday plans within the wide-spread Omicron variant of the coronavirus. Within the month of December, the Omicron variant has now grown to the most dominant variant of COVID-19 in the United States with cases rising in various cities.
Because of that, MSNBC reporter Alicia Menendez questioned “If someone in your family isn’t vaccinated, should you ask them not to show up?” “Yes, I would do that,” Fauci answered.
He added, “I think we’re dealing with a serious enough situation right now that if there’s an unvaccinated person I would say, ‘I’m very sorry, but not this time. Maybe another time when this is all over.'” Watch the video below for more:
