Capitol physician says lawmakers may have been exposed to COVID during riot lockdown

“Many members of the House community were in protective isolation in [a] room located in a large committee hearing space,” Dr. Brian Monahan said, adding, “During this time, individuals may have been exposed to another occupant with coronavirus infection.”

He advised members to keep up their “usual daily coronavirus risk reduction measures” such as social distancing and symptoms checks. He said they should also get tested for the virus next week as a precaution.
