Suspension of tourist visits to U.S. Capitol extended until May 16

WASHINGTON, April 28 (Reuters) - Tourists and other visitors to the U.S. Capitol and adjacent congressional offices will continue to be suspended until May 16, Senate and House of Representatives officials said on Tuesday.

The move comes amid continued concerns about the spread of the highly-contagious coronavirus, House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger said in a statement. A previous suspension was due to expire on May 1.
