A fiery first confirmation hearing for controversial state Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo. State Senator Lauren Book could not get a direct answer to whether or not he believes in the COVID-19 vaccine. He also says community masking is unlikely to have a substantial impact on the pandemic. Ladapo would also not say whether or not he regrets refusing to wear a mask in Senator Tina Polsky's office upon request. He has one more hearing before the full Republican-controlled Senate takes a final vote, expected to fall along party lines.
