Pelosi mandates masks in House chamber after Gohmert tests positive for Covid-19

Source: CNN.com

Washington (CNN)House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday she would require all House members and aides to wear masks on the floor after Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert -- who was often in the chamber interacting with colleagues and refusing to wear a face-covering -- tested positive for coronavirus.

"Members and staff will be required to wear masks at all times in the hall of the House," Pelosi announced from the House floor Wednesday afternoon.

Lawmakers will be permitted to temporarily take off masks when they are speaking.

Members and staff will not be allowed to enter if they don't wear masks. Pelosi noted that as speaker she has the authority to direct the House sergeant-at-arms to tell members to leave if they do not wear a mask.

Please tell me it is time to wake up now.

5. That's what I thought, too. But some republicans have ignored it for the most part.

3. Perfect!

It will likely help to keep the Repugs off the floor.

6. Gohmert is such a waste of space

I hope his state realizes this next time he runs for anything.

7. Why hasn't

Pelosi mandated this all along! If doctors and nurses can do it under the worst circumstances, then they can do it in Congress.
