DENVER, Colo. (AP) - A GOP staff member who tested positive for COVID-19 attended a morning House session and was sent home Monday as Colorado’s Democrat-led Legislature met for a special session.

Democratic House Speaker KC Becker has called the incident a “reckless breach” of the Capitol’s safety protocols.

House Republican leader Hugh McKean said that the Republican aide was cleared by a physician to work in person.

During the first day of the session, a number of Republicans removed their masks while seated at their desks at committee meetings and on the floor.
