Can a Senator evaluate a Supreme Court Justice if the Senator is Sick

The republicans are spinning that they can hold zoom or remote site votes for sick republican senators to vote on Comey Barrett.

However, a line of attack that democratic pundits should use is not whether a sick senator can attend or vote but if the purpose of the judiciary committee is for each senator to form an independant evaluation and determination of a candidates fitness, is a person with covid symptoms or who is taking drugs able to fulfill this function?

We dont let Pilots fly when they are hung over or sick or on drugs. If you ask the common man whether they can do their best work when they are sick, they will say of course not. That is why the judiciary committee should not meet until all senators are no longer sick and therefore are capable of evaluating a candidate.
