Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wants to bring lawmakers back in two weeks after an extended coronavirus-related recess — her statement coming after House leaders abruptly scrapped plans for an earlier return after warnings from the Capitol physician.
“We’re not coming back next week. Our plan is to come back the following week,” Pelosi told reporters during her weekly news conference Thursday.
Speaker Pelosi still refuses to consider any plan to allow the House to operate or function remotely. Sidelining and paralyzing the People's House at a moment of national crisis is unacceptable. It's time for the House to do its job.

If Democrats want to work from home, they should find a job where they can do that.
Otherwise, Nancy Pelosi should find some courage, show some leadership, and bring the House back to Washington.
We’ve made ample modifications to keep members safe.
No excuses. Duty.
