Covid-19 strikes legislator (Again)
Brandon Steele, a house delegate chairman has been diagnosed with covid-19. He stated that he felt that it was his allergies acting up and was at the capitol. This is the second time that he has contracted the disease. It is not known whether this will impact the legislature and if so, what that impact will be as it is possible that he passed it on while in the contagious phase.

While we wish the best for Steele, there may be a larger problem as recently as February 24, 2021, the West Virginia legislature has been seen to not be wearing or wearing improper face coverings while proceeding with their duties at the capitol.
