USA representative and walking self-parody Louie Gohmert, one of the many mouth-breathing conservative dolts who have mostly refused to wear a mask during the novel coronavirus pandemic, tested positive for the novel coronavirus on Wednesday.
At times Gohmert could be seen both wearing a mask and wearing it on his neck.
Masks will be available to any member who forgets theirs, Pelsoi said, adding that failure to comply will be viewed as "a serious breach of decorum" that can result in the offending lawmaker being removed from the chamber floor. "All Members and staff are expected to adhere to this requirement as a sign of respect for the health, safety, and well-being of others present in the Chamber and surrounding areas". An aide who responded asked that when the story is published, it "include the fact that Louie requires full staff to be in the office, including three interns, so that 'we could be an example to America on how to open up safely.'" The aide also implied that individuals visiting the office while wearing masks were regularly belittled for doing so.
Gohmert's use of the term flew in the face of warnings from medical historians and public health experts that associating a pandemic with a particular ethnic group can lead to discrimination.

The number of lawmakers announcing that they were self-quarantining after exposure to Gohmert this week continued to grow on Thursday.
Gohmert tested positive just before he was scheduled to travel to his home state with President Donald Trump.
Multiple GOP senators said Wednesday they were pushing McConnell to allow expanded testing. McConnell and Pelosi jointly rejected Trump's offer for rapid testing for lawmakers in May, saying they wanted instead to direct resources to front-line workers. If everyone who has had the virus starts acting with the belief they are immune, it could cause significant problems down the line. He said McConnell and the Capitol physician would have to be on board for that to happen, and he doesn't know why they aren't.
"I think it's very doable", Blunt said.
