SANDRA SMITH (CO-ANCHOR): Dr. Fauci, it also seems like the goal posts keep moving. You know, we know California is having problems. We're talking about additional strains, and all of us are trying to do what it takes to stay safe. And we all wear our masks, and we hope that most people are wearing their masks. But now we're hearing we should wear two. Where do you stand on that? If I go to the grocery store, do I wear two? Do I wear three? Is it safer to wear eight? Where does it stop? 

DR. ANTHONY FAUCI (WHITE HOUSE CHIEF MEDICAL ADVISER ON COVID-19): The discussion is changing, not the goal post. So the CDC doesn't officially recommend wearing double masks. 


FAUCI: What they're saying is, “You know what would be a good start? If everybody wears at least one mask." I think that would be important. So the CDC recommendations have not changed. What we're trying to do is to get individuals who are not wearing masks to wear masks.
