WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Saturday that all Senate floor activity would be rescheduled until after October 19, but committee work, like the confirmation hearing for President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, would continue.

“Previously-scheduled floor activity will be rescheduled until after October 19th… The important work of the Senate’s committees can and will continue as each committee sees fit,” McConnell said in a statement.

A number of Republican Senators have tested positive for the coronavirus in recent days.
