Lawmaker: 2 Alaska state senators test positive for COVID-19

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Senate President Peter Micciche says two state senators have tested positive for COVID-19 and a third was not feeling well.

    He did not identify the lawmakers who had tested positive.

    Lawmakers are in the second week of their fourth special session of the year. Tuesday's Senate floor session was a so-called technical session where no formal business was taken up.

    Masks are required at legislative facilities, including the Capitol, though individual lawmakers can decide if they want to wear masks in their respective offices.

    Legislators and legislative staff also are to participate in regular COVID-19 testing under a recently adopted policy.
