With COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy on the rise—and more than 40% of the USA fully vaccinated—many are wondering what can sweeten the deal: Can we stop wearing masks indoors, for example, once vaccinated? Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, appeared on Meet the Press with host Chuck Todd to discuss just that. Read on for 5 pieces of essential advice that can save your life—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Had COVID and Didn't Know It. 1 Dr. Fauci Said Soon—Not Now, But One Day—You May Be Able to Take Your Mask Off Indoors Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former FDA commissioner, has said we should be able to take our masks off indoors if we're vaccinated. Dr. Fauci said that may be true—soon, though not yet. "I think so," he said, when asked if Gottlieb was right. "And I think you're going to probably see that as we go along and as more people get vaccinated, the CDC will be almost in real time [be] updating their recommendations and their guidelines. But yes, we do need to start being more liberal as we get more people vaccinated. As you get more people vaccinated, the number of cases per day will absolutely go down. We're averaging about 43,000 a day. We've got to get it much, much lower than that. When that gets lower, the risk of any infection, indoor or outdoor diminishes dramatically." 2 Dr. Fauci Says Right Now, Wear a Mask Indoors—Here's Why The CDC announced this week that COVID-19 spreads in the air. "I had to check the date of the article to make sure it wasn't from a year earlier, this felt like a known thing," said Todd. "So now that there is a formal acknowledgment now of aerosol transmission, what does this mean for workplaces? What does this mean for schools, homes, things like this, if we're going to have to live with this virus for another year or so?""Well, I mean, as you mentioned, Chuck correctly, this is something we've known for some time now," said Dr. Fauci. "So when you have aerosol, then the distance between people becomes a little bit more problematic because generally when you say you have a certain distance that the droplets will fall and not reach a person. So right now this is going to have an emphasis on proper ventilation, because if there is aerosolization, you're going to want to have good ventilation—that could hold true for schools that it could hold true for workplaces. The other thing, it also brings out the possibility that you're going to have to make sure that indoors, when you have unvaccinated people, that people wear a mask, but that is already a CDC recommendation anyway. But when you have the ability of a particular virus to go further than just a few feet, clearly one of the most important things is proper ventilation and number two, mask wearing." 3 Dr. Fauci Said Wearing a Mask May be Seasonal Wearing a mask during certain seasons—"that's quite possible," said Dr. Fauci. "I think people have gotten used to the fact that wearing masks. Clearly, if you look at the data, [a mask] diminishes respiratory diseases—we've had practically a non-existent flu season this year, merely because people were doing the kinds of public health things that were directed predominantly against COVID-19. The Australians, during their winter, same thing. They had almost no flu, largely due to the kinds of things, including mask wearing. So it is conceivable that as we go on a year or two or more from now that during certain seasonal periods, when you have respiratory borne viruses, like the flu people might actually elect to wear masks to diminish the likelihood that you'll spread these respiratory borne diseases." 4 Dr. Fauci Said When We Might Return to Normal "The fact that we have vaccines right now is really a game changer," said Dr. Fauci. "If we get…70% of the people vaccinated by the 4th of July, namely one single dose, and even more thereafter, you may see blips, but if we handle them well—it is unlikely that you'll see the kind of surge that we saw in the late fall and the early winter. That's the reason why we plead with people to get vaccinated because the larger proportion of the population that's vaccinated, the less likelihood that in a season like the coming for the winter, you're going to see a significant surge. There's no doubt about that. That's the reason why vaccinations are so important. That's the wild card that we have now that we didn't have last fall or last winter." 5 How to Stay Safe During This Pandemic Follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

IHOP is known to be generous with their freebies—but then again, that's sort of what started this whole kerfuffle. After Adam Sandler took to Twitter to make light of an employee who turned him away from IHOP this week, the popular pancake chain has responded by declaring that in this case, the customer was clearly right. Here's how IHOP just took this hostess faux pas from awkward to awesome, with a deal for customers May 10.IHOP security footage from last week showed a masked Adam Sandler on a dad and daughter date, when an IHOP hostess informed him that it would be about a 30-minute wait before she'd be able to seat the pair. Sandler's visible reaction was one of surprise but good-naturedness, as he and his daughter turned to leave.RELATED: 7 Fast-Food Chicken Sandwiches Everyone Is Talking AboutLater, the IHOP hostess took to TikTok to reveal her embarrassment that she didn't realize she'd turned away one of the most beloved comics of all time. When her TikTok went viral, Sandler simply responded on Twitter with this: For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn't apply to the milkshakes.— Adam Sandler (@AdamSandler) May 4, 2021The next day, IHOP executives responded with equal good humor:You know what, @AdamSandler, you may be onto something here.

If you're getting ready to book Broadway tickets for the fall now that theaters are preparing to reopen, it sounds like you'll be able to catch a great nightcap. That's right—a ribbon-cutting took place this week at one of New York City's most famous eateries, and the buzz is big after the world came out to watch.New York Senator Chuck Schumer was on hand Thursday to cut the ribbon that symbolized the official reopening of Junior's Cheesecake on 45th Street and Broadway. Junior's is a 71-year-old New York establishment that's become a Times Square staple, with the brand billing itself as "home of the World's Most Famous Cheesecake."RELATED: The Saddest Restaurant Closures in Your StateBut since March 2020 when many businesses were forced to close down and as New York City tourism reached record-low volumes, plenty of well-known Big Apple restaurants have suffered—especially many that sit in Times Square, whose draw for travelers in the best of times earned it the nickname of "the crossroads of the world."So while Junior's original Brooklyn location has been open for business since June, according to sources, Junior's Times Square reopening is symbolic. Junior's owner Alan Rosen was quoted saying at the ribbon cutting: "It is not just that we are reopening, it's that more than 150 employees are coming back. They're the backbone of Junior's and I can't thank them enough for sticking with us and being here today." For the nation, this highlights the possibility that with the impressive vaccination progress we've made since the first vaccines were rolled out in December, we're evolving ever-nearer to life's return to normal.Just one tiny note: If you book a Big Apple trip and you make your way to Junior's, you may want to split that cheesecake slice with a friend. A regular serving of Junior's cheesecake reportedly contains almost 400 calories and 29 grams of fat.

Obesity, the second leading cause of preventable death in the country, impacts over 42 percent of American adults in the United States—and the chronic disease is becoming increasingly prevalent. There are a number of side effects of having a dangerously inflated BMI, including organ system damage leading to different issues such as diabetes, joint disease, gastroesophageal reflux, and being more susceptible to disease and viruses, such as COVID-19. Now a new study has identified another major side effect of obesity. Read on to find out what it is—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Had COVID and Didn't Know It.Being Obese Can Restrict Blood Flow to Your BrainScientists at The Irish Longitudinal Study on Aging (TILDA) at Trinity College Dublin have found that being overweight or obese can significantly reduce blood flow to the brain, a term called "cerebral hypoperfusion," which is considered an early mechanism in vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease.Researchers investigated three separate measures of obesity in adults over 50—body mass index (BMI), waist-to-hip ratio and waist circumference, and physical activity. Using MRI scanning they measured brain blood flow, identifying the relationship between obesity and increased blood flow. They note that brain blood flow usually declines with age. However, the negative influence that obesity has on brain blood flow is greater than that of age.They did identify one thing that can cancel out the negative effects: exercise. Increased physical activity was shown to improve or even negate the blood flow reduction. The researchers suggest getting at least 1.5 to two hours of moderate activity throughout the day that promote harder than normal breathing—like cycling or speed walking. RELATED: The #1 Cause of Obesity, According to Science"Consistent, Healthy Blood Supply to the Brain is Critical""Consistent, healthy blood supply to the brain is critical, as it ensures that the brain is provided with enough oxygen and nutrients to function correctly. If brain blood flow becomes impaired, it can lead to serious health issues as we age, such as increasing the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease," Dr. Silvin Knight, Research Fellow at TILDA and lead author, explained in a press release."We know that obesity can predispose a person to age-related conditions, illness, and disease, and even reduce life expectancy by up to 6 years in men and 7 years in women, after the age of forty. Our study reveals clear associations between obesity and reduced blood supply to the brain in an older population. The study also shows the importance of being physically active for older overweight or obese individuals, as this may help to protect against reduced brain blood flow and the poor health outcomes that can arise from this."
