The Delta Variant has done the trick and could possibly affect the way we travel. The current administration is looking at the possibility of mandating vaccines for air travel. Gary believes the lobbyist for airlines is freaking out right now spending money on politicians to stop this. Gary does not believe this will happen because logistical nightmare that it entails. Gary remembers reports that stated we could not get Covid-19 on airplanes so why the push for mandatory vaccines.
Gary calls out Dr. Fauci pushing these mandates. Dr. Fauci recently stated on a podcast “I would support that if you want to get on a plane and travel with other people that you should be vaccinated,”. The US Travel Association has responded stating that science and studies show that only a mask is required to be safe while traveling. The association has extended its current mask mandate to January 2022. However, this is in deep contrast to many airline CEOs as they require employees to get vaccinated. Recently United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby has stated “government responsibility and requirement.”
