Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious disease expert on the White House coronavirus task force, said Sunday the nation will come out of a coronavirus lock down in a “rolling re-entry” that for some parts of the country could start next month.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said there won't be a moment of “click, the light switch goes back on” to signal a return to normalcy to states battling COVID-19 outbreaks.

“[W]hat I was inferring when I said a rolling reentry.… it is not going to be a light switch that we say, 'okay, it is now June, July, or whatever, click, the light switch goes back on,'” he said. “It's going to be depending where you are in the country, the nature of the outbreak that you already experienced, and the threat of an outbreak that you may not have experienced. It's having to look at the situation in different parts of the country.”

“I think it could probably start at least in some ways next month,” he added. “We are hoping that at the end of the month we can look around… any we can cautiously pull back on” social distancing guidelines. “If not continue to hunker down,” he said.

Fauci also warned there could be a “rebound” of COVID-19 in the late fall and early winter.

“There is always the possibility as we get into next fall and beginning of winter we could see a rebound,” he said, adding the nation will hopefully have “the ability to respond in an effective way different than in January and February.”
