House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she’ll keep the House floor mask mandate until there is proof all lawmakers are vaccinated, scoffing at “an honor system.”

The California Democrat also blamed Republicans as untrustworthy vaccine holdouts and said she may eventually force them to vote in a separate location from the House floor.

Pelosi suggested the House could ban unvaccinated GOP lawmakers from the House floor and force them to vote in a special vestibule on the third floor of the Capitol, above the chamber.

“The honor system, as to whether somebody is vaccinated?” the California Democrat said, appearing incredulous when asked Thursday about whether she’ll keep the mask mandate indefinitely if some do not get the shot.
