Do you miss watching sports with a raucous crowd filling the stadium like all of us here do???
Well, while we might have to wait a bit longer before we see packed crowds again, Dr. Anthony Fauci says he's hopeful that full stadiums can return by fall of 2021!
Fauci told Yahoo Sports that arena crowds will be "the last thing that you're gonna see" as things slowly return to a new normal. While summer sports would be "cutting it close", Fauci thinks NFL football in September will be possible.
“We're gonna be vaccinating the highest-priority people [from] the end of December through January, February, March,” Fauci said. “By the time you get to the general public, the people who'll be going to the basketball games, who don't have any underlying conditions, that's gonna be starting the end of April, May, June. So it probably will be well into the end of the summer before you can really feel comfortable [with full sports stadiums] –if a lot of people get vaccinated. I don't think we're going to be that normal in July. I think it probably would be by the end of the summer.”
