Since November, Ms Coladangelo has reportedly been in the role of executive director at the Department of Health and Social Care since November. Strangely enough, her appointment is not noted anywhere on the public record.

People on social media have called for Hancock to resign from his position. Some are slating his alleged affair as the reason, while others insist it is the blatant disregard for social distancing rules. I will have to double-check, but I believe making out with coworkers is due to come into effect when restrictions lift on July 19th.
