The coronavirus pandemic continues to upend the daily work of Congress, which has seen a series of outbreaks.
By November, more than 25 members of Congress and at least 150 workers have tested positive, or were presumed so, for the coronavirus. And a Florida member's aide died this summer from COVID-19.
As a result, both chambers of Congress have recessed multiple times throughout the year as the Capitol has largely gone without a widespread testing program.
