March has come in Washington, and the repairs from the Jan. 6 Capitol attack are still ongoing as the National Guard presence remains.

As of this posting Friday, the Senate is in for a long night working on the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package. The legislation is expected to pass as it only requires a simple majority vote under the reconciliation process, with Vice President Kamala Harris on hand to break any 50-50 ties.

Here’s the week, so far, in photos as captured by our photojournalists:
