In an interesting step, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has told members in a letter that the House will take additional measures to limit the number of people on the House floor.
Specifically, Pelosi says that all House floor documents, like bills or resolutions, will now be submitted electronically.
“Beginning Tuesday, staff must electronically submit all Floor documents – including bills, resolutions, co-sponsors and extensions of remarks – to a dedicated and secure email system, rather than deliver these materials by hand to staff in the Speaker’s Lobby or Cloakrooms," she said in a letter to her colleagues.
"At this time, Members may still drop off materials in person. Electronic submissions will be accepted when the House is in pro forma session, as well as 15 minutes immediately before and after. This upcoming week’s pro forma sessions will be held Tuesday at 11:30 AM E.T. and Friday at 9:00 AM E.T. Pro forma sessions for the remainder of the month are expected to follow a similar schedule. Later today, the Clerk’s Office will send out detailed guidance on where and how to submit materials.”
