Capitol tours to be suspended due to coronavirus

Two sources told The Hill on Wednesday that the announcement will be made soon.

“The two sergeant at arms … are preparing to announce that they will stop tours of the Capitol due to the coronavirus,” one of the sources said.

The decision comes after multiple meetings this week to discuss efforts to try to prevent lawmakers and their staff from being infected with the virus, including a powwow with House Democrats and the Capitol’s attending physician.
