House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday called on members of Congress to practice social distancing in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
As you know, at the direction of the Sergeant at Arms, the House and Senate have canceled Capitol tours for now. As the House continues our work to confront this public health emergency, we must ensure that we can continue to serve our constituents effectively, Pelosi said in a Dear Colleague letter.
The health and safety of our staff is essential to this mission. In bipartisan consultation with the Attending Physician and the Sergeant at Arms, and out of an abundance of caution, I am writing to encourage you to take steps to promote social distancing within your Washington, D.C. office as we engage in the District Work Period, she added. This may entail more than half of your Washington staff teleworking from home.
Pelosis announcement comes the same day a former staffer with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiffs (D-Calif.) office was confirmed to have tested positive for the virus.

And they should have thought of that before the taxpayers paid tens of millions in sexual escapade cover-ups
When does the FISA court expire?
The democrat elite might get wiped out by this virus. Pelosi, Biden, Bernie all pushing into their 80’s.
I’m more concerned about what the uniparty is gonna sneak through while the sheeple are in a panic.
Have any of them been tested??? Inquiring minds want to know.
I will be more than happy to socially distance myself from any one of our public serpents.
Pelosi and the rest of the Demonicrats need to practice galactic distancing away from the Milky Way.
Yes — CLOSE THE BORDERS!
The Left gets a more authoritarian situation and the Right gets fewer people actually running the government... Is everybody happy now?
She JUST got around to that?
She’s a little late to the party, dontcha think?
God help us, seriously, if the dems win the election.
They (and we) would be much safer on another planet. Maybe return to their homeworlds ...?
A domestic travel ban now with Congress out of town would be good timing.
Better if all of DC would distance itself from the rest of the US, permanently. As in, stay the F away from us, you meddling, totalitarian leeches.
How about Congress “Work from home”? Probably do us some good to have them out of Washington.
‘social distancing’ isn’t that called congress?.
I’m in Phoenix and not quite far enough from DC and Pelosi.
Nancy should social distance herself right on back to SF.
