Anti-mask doctor’s medical license suspended

DALLAS, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Medical Board has suspended the license of a doctor who said he refuses to wear a mask in his clinic west of Salem and encouraged others to not wear masks. KGW-TV reports Dr. Steven LaTulippe told a pro-Trump rally in November that he and his staff do not wear masks while working in their Dallas clinic. A state order requires health care workers to wear face coverings in health care settings to help stem the spread of COVID-19. The medical board voted Thursday to suspend LaTulippe’s license immediately. LaTulippe did not answer a phone call from the media outlet on Friday seeking comment.
