SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) The California Senate will delay its work because of a coronavirus outbreak at the Capitol and an increasing number of new cases across the state.
The Senate had been scheduled to return from its summer recess on Monday. But a memo from Secretary of the Senate Erika Contreras says it won't be in session next week. The memo does not give a return date.
The state Assembly already announced an indefinite hiatus after six people who work there tested positive for the virus. That includes Democratic Assemblywoman Autumn Burke from Inglewood.
Lawmakers missed nearly two months of work at the start of the pandemic.
