Pelosi announces mask-mandate will remain the same on house floor following updated CDC guidelines

The House of Representatives Capitol physician recently announced that all previously-imposed mask-mandates for representatives on the house floor will continue to remain in effect, despite the CDC announcing its provision of mask policy that allows vaccinated persons to refrain from wearing a mask.

In a recent memo sent out by Capitol Physician Brian Monohan, the capitol hill guidelines were described as the following: “The present mask requirement and other guidelines remain unchanged until all members and floor staff are fully vaccinated.” Despite Monohan’s estimates that around 75% of representatives had been vaccinated, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D, CA) insisted that the pre-pandemic procedures of the legislature will not return until “more” of them have been vaccinated. She also stated that until “more” are vaccinated, socially-distanced 30-minute voting procedures in the legislature will be the only kind of meeting held on the house floor. 

However, it’s reported that nearly 3 dozen representatives complained about Pelosi’s insistence on keeping the outdated mask-mandate policy and asked her to lift it. Republican congressmen, led Congressman Bob Gibbs (R, OH), wrote “It is time to update our own workplace regulations. The United States Congress must serve as a model to show the country we can resume normal life through vaccination. Let’s follow the science and get back to work.”
