Navigating COVID confusion

Andrew Noymer, UCI associate professor of [public health said] “We should take precautions, wear masks in crowded indoor settings like shopping malls but we can get back to something closer to 2019. Once we are vaccinated and boosted, we can get out and go to a restaurant and go places. We don’t need to ‘lock down’. … The University of California, Irvine, where I teach, is going virtual for two weeks, but it’s mostly to get everyone tested. The intention, at this point, is to go back to the classroom.” [starting 11:30]
