Q: Will there still be an inauguration during the pandemic?
As of now, an Inauguration Day event is being set up and could be scaled back, if need be, based on COVID precautions. Because the event happens on federal property, it does not need to follow the District’s coronavirus restriction policies. Inaugural ceremonies have been held in nine other locations outside of the U.S. Capitol, according to the JCCIC. While some inaugurations have been held indoors due to bad weather, there has not been a digital-only ceremony.
