1. House & Senate need to consider how to deal with the #quorum if, as I expect, most, if not all, members will be infected. In particular the ages and predominance of male members in the Senate makes them a very high risk group IMO.
2. US Constitution Art I, sec 5, 1:
"Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members, and a Majority of each shall constitute a Quorum to do Business; but a smaller Number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to compel
3. the Attendance of absent Members, in such Manner, and under such Penalties as each House may provide."

So what happens if 51 Senators are killed by the pandemic? Is 49 the "Members" after 51 had died or does it remain 100?
4. What if they're just on life support using the 51 respirators Trump produces? 😬 Same for the house? The good news is, if you die from this, you're dead by day 18. So that's probably not going to be an issue.
