White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to clarify on Friday the remarks President Joe Biden made about the coronavirus during an address to the nation on Thursday night.
Biden said that if Americans got vaccinated and kept wearing masks and social distancing, they “might” be able to have small gatherings for the 4th of July.
Psaki said on Friday that Biden didn’t mean people should have a “mass event” or “return to total normalcy.”
“It’s certainly not a full return to concerts and soccer stadiums,” she said.
