California Legislature Delays Start of 2021 Session Due to COVID-19
The Legislature pushed its return date to Sacramento for the start of the 2021 legislative session back by a week to January 11 due to staggering COVID-19 numbers.
Both houses have instituted pandemic protocols ranging from temperature checks, mandatory masking and social distancing, plexiglass installations at the Capitol’s entrance and more frequent cleaning.
The delay underscores how challenging it will be to continue working uninterrupted in 2021.
Almost daily, new cases in the Capitol community prompt email alerts to all staff and members to announce another case in state government buildings.
