There will be more:
- Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ), a 75-year-old cancer survivor, has tested positive for coronavirus following the Capitol-lockdown superspreading event where multiple GOP lawmakers refused to wear masks.
- Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) also tested positive for coronavirus Monday night.
(Full disclosure: Jayapal is my representative, I’ve met her at townhalls, she’s a delightful firecracker and I want her to be well ASAP.)
UPDATE 1: Rep. Brad Schneider (D-IL) tested positive.
UPDATE 2:— The WaPo reports that “Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) plans to introduce legislation Tuesday to impose a $1,000 fine on members who refuse to wear masks while in the U.S. Capitol complex.”
