SALEM, Ore. (AP) --- The Oregon House has canceled its Monday floor session, after another confirmed case of COVID-19 was reported at the Capitol.

The Statesman Journal reports that an individual diagnosed with COVID-19 was in the building on March 16.

Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek decided on Monday's cancellation ''out of an abundance of caution,'' Kotek's chief of staff Lindsey O'Brien said. 

Officials confirmed that some people are still waiting on test results.

The next House floor session is expected to be Tuesday morning, unless there are additional COVID-19 diagnoses.
