Masks Still Required for U.S. House Members in Congress

Washington D.C. is rolling back mask requirements for anyone who is fully vaccinated, but it’s a different story at the U.S. Capitol.

Members of the House of Representatives are still required to wear masks on the House floor.

Congress’ attending physician says he will keep the mask requirement in place until all members and floor staff are fully vaccinated.

Because masks are still required, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will continue to allow members to vote without being present until July 3.

The Senate does not have rules about mask-wearing, so no changes have been made.
