LA Times Today: California’s surgeon general on COVID-19 mandates

Watch L.A. Times Today at 7 p.m. on Spectrum News 1 on Channel 1 or live stream on the Spectrum News App. Palos Verdes Peninsula and Orange County viewers can watch on Cox Systems on channel 99.

Until two years ago, California did not have a state surgeon general. That changed when Dr. Nadine Burke-Harris was appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom.

Little did anyone know, we would soon face a global pandemic that would claim more than 65-thousand California lives and reveal persistent healthcare inequities that have had huge societal costs. To talk about where we are now and the future of healthcare in the state, Dr. Burke-Harris joined us.
