Dr. Fauci: Voting In Person Will Be As Safe As Going To The Grocery Store, If You Follow Guidelines

|

Coronavirus task force chief Dr. Anthony Fauci said in an interview with National Geographic this week that in-person voting will be as safe as going to the grocery store as long as people follow posted safety guidelines. He added that those who are at high risk or "compromised physically" should take advantage of normal absentee voting methods.


"I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there's no reason that I can see why that not be the case. For example, you know, when you look at going to a grocery store now in many regions and counties and cities that are doing it correctly, they have X's every six or more feet. And it says, 'Don't leave this spot until the person in front of you left their spot.' And you can do that, if you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don't have a crowded situation, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to do that," Dr. Fauci said.
