This coming Tuesday, there’s a Senate Health Committee hearing to discuss reopening American schools and businesses.
All the key personnel at that hearing — including the Senator who chairs the committee and the expert witnesses — are self-quarantining after recently being exposed to someone who tested positive for Covid-19, and will be appearing by videoconference.
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who has chaired the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions since 2015, is self-quarantining at home in Tennessee after a staff member tested positive, according to a statement released by his office on Sunday.
