Texas House Democratic Caucus Chairman Chris Turner said Saturday that three unnamed members would self-quarantine for 10 days.

One of them is experiencing mild symptoms of COVID-19.

Texas Democrats walked out of the State House of Representatives last Monday and boarded two chartered flights to Washington, D.C. to thwart a Republican-backed election reform bill by depriving the chamber of a quorum.

While in Washington to wait for a special legislative session called by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Democrats met with congressional lawmakers and pressured them to approve the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.

Democrats also walked out of the Rajya Sabha before voting on election legislation in the final hours of the regular legislative session on May 30, reducing the number of lawmakers required to vote in the House.
