People having a virus doesn't suspend government functions.
I wish more people could wrap their head around this. It doesn't matter WHAT government position you're talking about, there is a process in place to replace the individual holding the office if they become incapable of performing the duties of the office, no matter WHAT the cause is.

With everyone in the country who is required/forced to work from home, avoid face to face meetings and such do you think they will shut down Congress if they can't meet face to face with safety?

Some might want that, maybe even some in Congress, but it shouldn't be allowed to happen. A Supreme Court judge dies, we appoint another. Should any of the Congress die or medically retire, we will appoint/elect their replacement. Life goes on, and so does the business of government.
