Dr. Anthony Fauci said he doubts Americans will ever get to a point where Americans won’t have to wear masks on airplanes. When asked if we’ll ever get to a point where you don’t have to wear masks on planes, Fauci said he doesn’t think so.

“I don’t think so, “Fauci said. “When you’re dealing with a closed space, even though the filtration is good, that you want to go that extra step.”

Fauci has also recently said he supports vaccine mandates for air travel.

“I would support that,” Dr. Fauci said. “If you want to get on a plane and travel with other people … you should be vaccinated.”

A 2020 study by the Department of Defense countered Fauci’s opinion on airline travel.

The study, conducted by the Department of Defense in partnership with United Airlines, found that when seated with a mask on, “only 0.003% of particles actually made their way into another passenger’s breathing zone,” ABC News reported.
