The ongoing coronavirus pandemic loomed large over every aspect of Sunday’s opening day of the 117th Congress, with fears of spreading the virus front and center and lawmakers fighting over masks on the floor of the House.
Lawmakers crowded into the Capitol in the closing days of Donald Trump’s presidency for the swearing in of hundreds of members and the election of Nancy Pelosi to speaker, all amid a Republican effort to challenge President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
But with the pandemic still surging across the nation, the ever-present threat of the coronavirus was already dominating the day. In the starkest example, House officials created a plexiglass enclosure in a corner of the visitor’s gallery to allow three lawmakers — two Democrats and a Republican who are in quarantine after exposure to the virus — “to fulfill their Constitutional duties,” according to the Capitol physician. The so-called “holding facility” was created with “the highest possible safeguards,” the physician said in a statement.
