Federal guidance on wearing face coverings indoors may change soon, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Fauci spoke to ABC News Sunday and said it's likely to happen "as we go along and as more people get vaccinated."

He added that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be updating its guidance almost in real-time.

Last month, the CDC relaxed its guidance on wearing masks outdoors but currently advises both vaccinated and unvaccinated people to wear masks in indoor public spaces.
