Democrats in the state House are urging Republican leaders to take more precautions to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus.

The move comes after Republican Representative Andrew Lewis of Dauphin County tested positive for COVID-19.

Democrats say they learned of the diagnosis a week later.

Representative Kevin Boyle of Philadelphia says that’s too long.

“This is a willful disregard, not just of members and staff, but also the many service and security workers who also work in this building,” said Boyle.

Boyle tried to convince other lawmakers to adjourn until June 8, so Republican and Democrats could agree on testing, tracing, social distancing and disclosure practices related to COVID-19

His motion failed, mostly along party lines.

Only one Democrat voted against it.
