The Capitol’s attending physician launched a new testing program for members and staff on Monday amid a national spike in cases. Concerns have ramped up that the building, which hosts lawmakers, visitors and employees who travel across the nation, will be a hub for new coronavirus cases given the frequent travel and exposure of the people who work there.
