Dr. Fauci claims that Broadway could be doing shows as soon as next fall, according to Fox News.

“I think that will be completely dependent on the uptake of vaccines by the people of the country and specifically the people of New York,.”

“Since New York has many tourists, it probably is going to be the entire country.”

From Fox News:

Fauci, in an interview with WNBC Tuesday evening, said if people get vaccinated in the spring as the vaccine becomes available to the general public, New Yorkers and the entire country could get back to normal by the end of summer or beginning of fall 2021.

Fauci indicated that a return to normalcy would mean 75 or 85 percent of people would need to get vaccinated, and said those with underlying conditions are a high priority.
