Homer was among several Republicans in the House who were resistant to wearing masks, despite recommendations from health experts that a face coat is an effective way to prevent the spread of viral drops.
Many of those legislators who did not wear masks represent states that are now hot coronavirus programs, including Texas, Arizona, and Florida.
But on Thursday, every Republican had a mask on the floor of the House. The floor staff also followed the rules, telling members to wear masks that slid under their noses.
However, one GOP legislator did not fully follow the rules.

The woman’s young employee quickly approached Grotman, who initially ignored her. But once a senior male worker intervened, Grotman got up and left. He later returned to the Chamber with a mask on.
Pelosi warned, announcing a new policy from the chamber floor on Wednesday night, that any lawmaker or official without a mask would be barred from entering the chamber and risked being removed if they did not comply.
Some Democrats called for a mask on the floor of the House weeks ago, long before Homert tested positive for COVID-19. But they said it was better late than never.
“One would hope that this would be done as a rule of general decency, but we obviously need a rule,” Rep said.

I’m sorry she had to do that. “
“This is a scandalous situation when it comes to members who are ill and can potentially expose everyone else,” Ruskin added. “Everyone’s nervous.”
Homert recently attended numerous committee hearings on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, sometimes without a mask. In recent weeks, he has sometimes worn a face covering, but also in some cases mingled with his Republican counterparts without a floor.
The mask requirement, which officially took effect on Thursday morning, applies to both the floor of the house and the surrounding office buildings. A report to lawmakers and staff by Arms Sergeant Paul Irving and Capitol doctor Brian Monahan said anyone without a mask would be “asked to put on their faces or leave the building.”
However, legislators do not have to wear masks as long as they are recognized to speak in the House of Commons or in committees.
Earlier, Pelosi began demanding masks at committee meetings in June. This directive appeared after another MP on GP appeared around the Capitol without a mask – Rep. Tom RiceHugh (Tom) Thompson Rique Pelosi demands masks on the floor of the house Many state deputies who are subject to quarantine after the impact of Homert Homert’s tests, positive for COVID-19 MORE (SC) – test positive for coronavirus.
The chairmen of the Democratic House committees stopped forcing any members without masks to leave the hearing. But some chairmen have introduced a policy of refusing to give time to speak to any member who does not wear a mask. However, Majority Majority Member James Clayburn (DS.C.), who chairs the Coronavirus Crisis Selection Committee, threatened to suspend personal hearings last month if GOP members continued not to wear masks.
During the meeting with the members of the conference, the leaders of the Chamber of Public Organizations decided to support the use of masks and reviewed security measures. Masks were needed for the meeting itself.

During the conference, McCarthy also complained to staff that numerous SOE lawmakers, including Homer, were forcing their employees to work in person during a pandemic and reportedly refusing to use masks in their offices.
McCarthy advised his members to check with their employees, because they should not think that they are comfortable working in the office, according to a source in the room.

If Homer had not been tested at the White House, he would probably have spent another day on Capitol Hill carrying the virus without showing any symptoms or contact with others.

The White House rejected a proposal for a similar testing system for Congress because they wanted to direct resources to frontline workers. But McCarthy, Davis and others say the decision should be reconsidered.
“There is no other place that is responsible for this size, which is managed in this way. “I don’t understand,” McCarthy said.
Homert’s diagnosis quickly began a chain reaction between fellow MPs, staff and journalists, who rushed to quarantine and were tested.
The number of lawmakers who announced they would be quarantined after Homert’s exposure this week continued to rise on Thursday. At the moment, at least four of Homer’s colleagues are isolating themselves: Reps. Kay GrangerNorwell (Kay) legislators Kay GringerGOP are fulfilling Pelosi’s mandate for a mandated home.

Grillva, meanwhile, chaired a hearing at the House Natural Resources Committee on Tuesday, in which Homer took part in a park police affair with protesters in Lafayette Square last month.

A Justice Department spokesman confirmed to The Hill on Wednesday that Barr would be tested for coronavirus the same day. Testing the subject the day after exposure to COVID-19 increases the likelihood of false negatives.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz), chairman of the conservative Kauku Freedom Chamber, was among lawmakers seen on the floor in recent weeks without a mask. But on Thursday, Biggs wore a mask adorned with his country’s flag, claiming he wore it.
“I don’t think any of us have ever denied that it’s real,” Biggs said of the coronavirus.
