SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A coronavirus outbreak in the California Legislature has indefinitely delayed the state Assembly’s return to work from a scheduled summer recess.

Speaker Anthony Rendon’s office confirmed five people who work in the state Assembly have tested positive for the coronavirus. They include Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, who is believed to have contracted the virus while on the Assembly floor last month.

Rendon said Monday the Assembly will stay in recess until further notice. He said the decision is to protect lawmakers, staff and the public.

The Legislature shut down for nearly two months earlier this year during the pandemic.

A welcome cooling trend is ahead through Friday, but dry, warmer and windy conditions will bring elevated fire danger this weekend.
