WASHINGTON—House lawmakers worked late into the evening Thursday on legislation to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said they will likely vote on Friday on an economic stimulus package that will provide free coronavirus testing along with sick pay and other measures for affected workers. The Senate is in recess, but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he would bring back lawmakers to vote on the legislation.
