The Arizona House of Representatives will close for a week due to COVID-19 concerns, according to state officials. Buildings will be closed starting Monday, December 7, according to an email sent Sunday afternoon.
According to the chief of Staff for the Arizona House of Representatives, Michael E. Hunter, no one will have permission to work or meet in the building and all staff will perform all work and schedule meetings remotely.
The decision regarding how the lockdown for the legislature should be paced will come after a week after the New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani, who tested positive for COVID-19, visited Arizona to argue Arizona’s election results aren’t legitimate. More than a dozen Republican members of the legislature attended the meeting.
Sources claim that this legislature lockdown will precede till post Christmas. Members of the legislature will also be celebrating Christmas virtually with fellow colleagues and family.
