Just a few months ago, President Joe Biden declared the COVID-19 pandemic was “over.”

Apparently, the vice president did not get the memo.

Breitbart News reported on Sunday that Vice President Kamala Harris is requiring anyone 2 or older to have a negative COVID test before participating in the swearing-in ceremony for new or recently re-elected senators on Tuesday.

And being vaxxed does not matter.

“We look forward to welcoming your Senator on January 3, 2023, to the ceremonial reenactment for incoming and newly re-elected Senators in the Old Senate Chamber,”  Grisella Martinez, director of legislative affairs in Harris’ office wrote in an email to incoming senators, Breitbart reported.

“As you are aware, White House COVID-19 protocols require that anyone over two years of age who will interact with the Vice President take a medically-administered antigen test within 24 hours prior to interaction, and receive a negative result. This policy applies regardless of vaccination status.”

The results of such test must be known within 24 hours of the 1 p.m. start time for the ceremonies on Tuesday.

Breitbart noted that there is an official swearing-in event for new or re-elected senators, and that is followed by a re-enactment that includes a photo opp with Harris.

“Several U.S. Senate sources told Breitbart News they are uneasy with these coronavirus testing requirements on their young family members,” the website reported.

Harris’ testing mandate comes after President Joe Biden recently signed a massive spending bill that ended the vaccine requirement for U.S. military personnel.

Meanwhile, the “Biden-Harris” administration is in federal court arguing for the end of Title 42, a federal regulation invoked by former President Donald Trump that allowed authorities to cite COVID-19 as a reason to expel illegal immigrants without a hearing. 

“This many years into the pandemic, especially as the Biden administration is in court currently trying to argue the pandemic is over, and it should be allowed to lift Title 42 authority at the border, this is beyond ridiculous,” an unidentified Senate source told Breitbart.

“Senators’ children and grandchildren should not be subjected to this insanity so Kamala can pretend to care about fighting coronavirus. At what point does the madness end?”

Breitbart also noted that some senators are reportedly so bothered by the mandate that they might skip the photo ceremony with Harris.
