Top Health Official Refused To Wear A Mask During A Meeting

The state of Florida’s top health officer was forced to leave a meeting after refusing to wear a mask in the office of a cancer-stricken state lawmaker.

Tina Polsky, a Florida senator, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and asked state surgeon general Joseph Ladapo to wear a mask when he came for a meeting on Wednesday.

He refused to put one on. Ladapo requested a meeting with Polsky as he seeks Senate confirmation after being appointed to the position by Gov.

Ron DeSantis last month.

DeSantis has been staunchly opposed to COVID-19 immunization requirements, describing them as unjust and discriminatory.

It was startling to her that he treated her in this manner, according to Polsky. 

If he is appointed Surgeon General for the next many years, she is very concerned about future public health emergencies and not being able to rely on him for required direction and scientific leadership. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer patients are more likely to become very sick from COVID-19 and may not develop the same immunity to vaccinations. Ladapo offered to accompany the senator outdoors, but she declined, stating that she did not want to sit on the metal picnic tables on a sweltering day when her office was pleasant and large. 

She stated that she inquired as to why he couldn’t wear a mask, but he stated that he couldn’t. Democrats have spoken out against Ladapo’s nomination, denouncing him for words and actions relating to the epidemic. Ladapo approved new regulations enabling parents to choose whether their children should be quarantined or allowed to continue in school after being exposed to persons who tested positive for COVID-19 on the first day of their position.

At a press conference with DeSantis on Thursday to oppose vaccine mandates, Ladapo stated that people were uneasy about the vaccines because the federal government had not been open about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccines, claiming that there was a “concerted effort” to conceal stories of people who had adverse reactions.

The US Food and Drug Administration has given full approval to Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, indicating that it meets the stringent requirements necessary for the vaccine to be considered safe. It has been delivered to millions of people and has been shown to be useful in preventing hospitalization and death. 

Immunity against infection, on the other hand, might diminish with time. Authorities in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway halted or discouraged the use of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccination in young people earlier this month due to an elevated risk of heart inflammation, a relatively rare adverse effect of the injection. 

Weesam Khoury, a spokesperson for the Department of Health, said the department was unaware of any specific Senate policy, but that it would consult members ahead of time and make appropriate adjustments, such as meeting through Zoom or outside. Khoury stated in an email that the Department of Health “will be addressing this directly with members of the Senate, rather than having this play out publicly.”
