Nancy Pelosi Chides Members for Violating Health Protocols

Newly reelected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) chided members over strict adherence to “respecting proper health and safety guidelines” on the House floor in the era of the Chinese coronavirus less than 24 hours after making an exception, allowing exposed lawmakers to break quarantine to vote in the speakership election, which she won by less than a majority.
