The Capitol police have been ordered to arrest anyone at the Capitol who is not wearing a mask. This includes anyone who is vaccinated and even Congressional staff members who are vaccinated.

From The Daily Wire: 

U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) were instructed to arrest vaccinated staff and visitors on the House side if they do not wear masks, according to a police memo that circulated Thursday.

The memo, issued Wednesday by USCP Chief Thomas Manger, reads in part: “If a visitor or staff member fails to wear a mask after a request is made to do so, the visitor or staff shall be denied entry to House office buildings or the House side of the Capitol.”

“Any person who fails to either comply or leave the premises after being asked to do so would be subject to an arrest for Unlawful Entry,” the memo continued. It stipulated that a member of Congress who refuses to mask up will be not be arrested but rather “reported to the House Sergeant at Arms’ Office.”

Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) posted a screenshot of the memo, which she told Fox News was given to her by an unnamed police officer. Cammack claimed police have told her they are “very uncomfortable” with the order.

These details came to light via a memo sent from USCP Chief Thomas Manger. This new policy at the Capitol comes at a time where nationwide mask mandates are being threatened.
