MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST AND FOX BUSINESS ANCHOR): Katie, when I listen to the doctor [Anthony Fauci] talk about what needs to be put in place before we can all go back outside, it always reminds me that doctors never recommend you take any risk, you know? I mean they always, they always err on the side of being as cautious as possible. I had a friend growing up whose dad was a neurosurgeon, and he made her wear a helmet walking down the street to the bus when there was any snow out, because he thought she could fall and hit her head. Of course, that was his perspective as a neurosurgeon. But poor kid was like wearing a helmet walking down the street. And to him, that made all kinds of sense. She was willing to take the risk, though. What are your thoughts?
