This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks outside in crowds and in most indoor environments.
McKinnon played Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, telling viewers, “It’s your boy Fauci, the patron saint of Purell. “
Purell is an American brand of hand sanitizer that became ubiquitous during the pandemic.
Adding that the new regulations may have confused Americans, she said, “To clarify matters, I found a few CDC doctors who were mining in the theater to demonstrate the mask’s correct behavior.
Aidy Bryant and Beck Bennett then acted inside a bar. When Bryant asked if Bennett was vaccinated, he replied that he was not, but that should be assumed since he was in a pub at 11 a.m. “You’re right, I deserve Covid,” Bryant replied.
Alex Moffat and Cecily Strong appeared in another scene on two people at a large rally. Strong told Moffat that it was not necessary to wear a mask because they were outside, “outside the Capitol building.” The pair then rushed in, with Moffat donning a MAGA hat. “It was a very specific but precise example in terms of masks,” McKinnon’s Fauci noted.
Keegan-Michael Key was this week’s host, while Olivia Rodrigo was the musical guest.
