WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called for the Senate to adopt a coronavirus testing and contact tracing program for lawmakers and others at the U.S. Capitol, after President Donald Trump tested positive for COVID-19.
“The Senate needs a testing and contact tracing program for senators, staff, and all who work in the Capitol complex,” Schumer said in a statement.
“It is imperative that all results be made public in order to contain a possible outbreak and so we can determine the need for senators and staff to quarantine or self-isolate,” he said.
