COVID is trying to stage a comeback, especially in areas with low vaccination rates.

As the Delta variant spreads throughout the U.S., so is talk of reimposing mask mandates.

Earlier this week on the FOX News Rundown, Admiral Brett Giroir — former Assistant Health Secretary under President Trump — joined host Lisa Brady to discuss the recent COVID spikes and whether mask mandates are the way to curb them.

While Admiral Giroir says certain Americans should continue to mask up, he insists the government should not mandate them. However, he did lay out what the Biden Administration and health officials should be doing more to address the current coronavirus wave.

Our interview was too long and we could not include all of it in our original segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra, you will hear our entire conversation with former Assistant Health Secretary Admiral Brett Giroir and hear his complete take on what government should and should not do as it deals with yet another COVID surge and millions of Americans who are still reluctant to be vaccinated.
