Congress Drops Mask Mandate Ahead of Biden’s SOTU Speech on Tuesday

The House is lifting its mask mandate ahead of President Biden’s State of the Union address this week, making mask wearing optional throughout the Capitol complex. In a letter on Sunday, Capitol Physician Brian Monahan shared the changes with lawmakers returning to Washington this week. “Individuals may choose to mask at any time, but it is no longer a requirement,” he wrote.  

And they’re doing this despite CDC recommendations because again, it’s always been political.
