Charleston, South Carolina – Santa Claus won’t be wearing a mask when he comes down the chimney this year.
According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, Santa Claus has “innate immunity” against the virus.
In an interview with USA Today, Dr. Fauci told kids that they don’t have to worry about good ole St. Nick skipping Christmas.
“Santa is exempt from this because Santa, of all the good qualities, has a lot of good innate immunity,” Dr. Fauci told USA Today.
With COVID-19 surging in many states, many experts are warning people about the risks of traveling during the holiday season.
Although Santa travels all around the world in one night, it’s good to know he won’t be spreading the virus to anyone.
“Santa is not going to be spreading any infections to anybody,” he said.
