During an interview with The Washington Post on Wednesday, Tony Fauci said Americans planning to spend time with families during the holidays should impose their own vaccine mandates for those entering homes.

The suggestion recommends people require all guests entering their private homes get and show proof of a COVID vaccination. “When you get vaccinated, and you have a vaccinated group, and you are in an indoor setting, you can enjoy, as we have traditionally over the years, dinners and gatherings within the home with people who are vaccinated,” Fauci said.
He went on to say, “And that’s the reason why people should, if they invite people over their home, essentially ask and maybe require that people show evidence that they are vaccinated, or give their honest and good faith word that they have been vaccinated. So, vaccinated puts you in a much different position than the extreme vulnerability of people who are not vaccinated, because all you have to do is look at the data and look at those areas of the country, those states, those communities that are under-vaccinated,”
