If you predicted we'd be wearing face masks well into 2022, you were more than likely correct.

Dr. Anthony Fauci recently told  CNN's 'State of the Union' that it is "possible" Americans may still need to wear face masks in 2022, even as the country could approach a certain "degree of normality."

While it's not a shock or the end of the world, it just sucks thinking that we'll still be wearing these things next year.

Honestly, wearing a mask really isn't a big deal when I'm going to a store or out to eat, it's just kind of getting a bit old. Also, I was hoping to get married in 2022 in Hawaii but if I have to wear a mask while I'm there, I'm not going. That's not how I want to remember my wedding.

Obviously, Dr. Fauci can't predict the future or when we'll start to see some sort of normalcy but according to Fox News, he believes that, by the end of the year, the United States could have "a significant degree of normality beyond what the terrible burden that all of us have been through over the last year."

Dr. Fauci:

As we get into the fall and the winter, by the end of the year, I agree with [President Biden] completely, that we will be approaching a degree of normality. It may or may not be precisely the way it was in November of 2019 but it’ll be much much better than we’re doing right now.

He also said that a lot of things could change to modify that.

That’s the reason why we’ve got to be careful. Because you have variance that you need to deal with. There are so many other things that would make a projection that I give you today on this Sunday, wind up not being the case six months from now.
