A state order requires health care workers to wear a face veil in health care facilities to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Medical Board voted on Thursday to immediately suspend LaTulippe’s license. The indefinite suspension prevents LaTulippe from practicing medicine anywhere in the state. According to a statement on the Oregon Health Board website, the Heart Specialist Anatomy Doctor Medical Biology Giftt Shirt suspension was given “due to the council’s concern for the safety and well-being of current and future licensees. ”
LaTulippe operates a family clinic called South View Medical Arts in Dallas.
His comments were made during a “Stop Stealing” election rally in Salem on November 7. The video was posted on YouTube by Multnomah County Republicans.
“Me and my staff, none of us, never once, wore a mask in our clinic,” LaTulippe said at the rally. He also said that people should “take off the mask of shame.”
Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Heart Specialist Anatomy Doctor Medical Biology Giftt Shirt Federation of State Health Boards encourage health care professionals to wear masks while in health care facilities. In an updated report in late November, the CDC reiterated that numerous studies have shown that the widespread use of cloth masks controls the spread of COVID-19.
LaTulippe did not respond to a call from the media on Friday morning seeking comment. He also declined to be interviewed earlier this week.
