Members of the House of Representatives could soon be penalized for not wearing a mask while on the chamber floor. 

The House is expected to approve a rule requiring members to wear one or face a fine of $500 -- $2,500, if it happens again. 

At least three Democratic lawmakers have tested positive for COVID-19 since the Capitol siege. 

All three said they were in a secure location with Republican colleagues who refused to wear masks.
