Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is seeking an agreement to push back Senate floor activity two weeks, until Oct. 19, according to a statement from McConnell.
The Senate would meet in pro forma sessions until Oct. 19. McConnell said in the statement the Senate Judiciary Committee will continue to meet and work on the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
Multiple senators have tested positive for the coronavirus over the past several days.
McConnell would need Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to agree to this move. CNN has reached out to Schumer’s office.
