Pelosi Announces the House Will Expand its COVID-19 Testing

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that the House will soon proceed with an expansion of COVID-19 testing due to the Air Force providing up to 2,000 tests for the entire Congress.

Pelosi made the announcement during a Democratic leadership call on the same day that D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser unveiled new rules requiring travelers to the nation’s capital to test negative for COVID-19 before and after arrival.

The Air Force will provide the COVID-19 tests for Congress at no additional cost for the next six weeks, according to a senior Democratic aide. The aide added that a longer-term solution is being discussed.
