Covid-19 Policy

From the Standing Committee of Correspondents:

Masks are still highly recommended throughout the complex and required in the press galleries, and some pandemic restrictions remain in effect around the Capitol complex. Members of the public are still barred from congressional hearings without prior agreements from committees, and reporters wishing to attend must request a seat ahead of time. Only a few seats are being made available to reporters for hearings. Congressional events continue to be broadcast over the internet, and committees are expected to continue that practice well into the future.

The press gallery staffs and committee stand ready to help you with any further questions about the situation on Capitol Hill.
