President-Elect Biden's Inauguration Ceremony 2021 - Here's What to Expect

New details are rolling in regarding President-Elect Joe Biden‘s inauguration ceremony in 2021.

The President-Elect and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris are preparing for a ceremony amid the pandemic on January 20, which means protocol is still being discussed, although more details have been revealed, via TMZ on Tuesday (December 8).

According to a representative from the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, the event will be held in-person.

“We’re told the JCCIC is going to require masks and social distancing for everyone sitting on the dais with Biden — which you’d expect — but the Committee is also considering imposing mandatory testing for anyone who will be in the Prez-elect’s immediate vicinity,” the outlet adds.

The construction of the stage is currently in progress.

As for attending the event at the National Mall to watch: “the District of Columbia has already laid out ground rules. It’s requiring masks, distancing and negative tests…especially for out-of-staters, who will have to quarantine for 14 days before the ceremony,” according to the report.

The D.C. Mayor’s Office told TMZ they are still planning for the customary parade after the swearing-in ceremony.

Biden still has to appoint his own Presidential Inaugural Committee, which the city will take orders from on how to proceed.

President Donald Trump may be skipping the ceremony to announce this.
