Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin was among other lawmakers caught on video turning down a mask during the lockdown at the Capitol. At least one representative has tested positive for COVID-19 in the days following the attack.

In a video, a person is seen offering masks to lawmakers, including Rep. Mullin.

“I’m not trying to get political, in fact, I just want to get along but I appreciate you,” said Rep. Mullin.

The attending physician for members of Congress urges lawmakers to continue wearing masks and watch for COVID-19 symptoms in the days ahead. CBS News reported several lawmakers were taken into an area of the Capitol that holds hundreds of people when the attack was taking place.
