Dozens of public health officials are quitting during pandemic


August 18, 2020

In some cases, government health officials have quit or been removed from their jobs after clashing with elected leaders.

New York City Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot resigned this month after feuding with Mayor Bill de Blasio (D). Health officials in Texas, Indiana and Montana have quit in recent weeks after politicians overrode their advice on requiring masks and prohibiting public events.
