The body of Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., will arrive at the U.S. Capitol to Lie in State in the Rotunda on Monday. A private ceremony will be held at 1:30pm.
The casket will be moved to the top of the center steps on the East Front of the Capitol to allow the public to pay their respects on Monday from 6:00pm to 10:00pm and on Tuesday from 8:00am until 10:00pm (according to CNN). Social distancing will be enforced and mourners will be required to wear masks.
