News 12 hosted a virtual town hall answering your questions about what's next in our recovery.
Speaking to our panel of officials and experts Wednesday night, one of the most asked questions was "when can we take our masks off for good?"
"We're not ready to take them off completely but as you know we will get vaccine to everyone that wants it probably by the end of May. And with vaccinating children on the horizon, hopefully in the next few months, I am certainly hopeful that by the end of this year, beginning of next year, we will be done with those masks," says Dr. Sharon Nachman.
The Biden administration says there will be enough doses to vaccinate every adult by the end of May.
