According to AP News, Dr. Anthony Fauci told Congress the next few weeks are critical to tamping down a disturbing coronavirus surge, issuing a plea for people to wear masks and avoid crowds.

Fauci told lawmakers he understands the pent-up desire to get back to normal as the U.S. begins emerging from months of stay-at-home orders and business shutdowns. But that has “to be a gradual step-by-step process and not throwing caution to the wind,” he said.

Troubling surges worsened Tuesday in several states, with Arizona, California, Mississippi, Nevada and Texas setting single-day records for new coronavirus cases. Some governors are saying they’ll consider reinstating restrictions or delaying plans to ease up in order to help slow the spread of the virus.

“Plan A, don’t go in a crowd. Plan B, if you do, make sure you wear a mask,” Fauci said.
