Biden’s Inauguration to Prioritize
Public Health by Featuring Virtual Parade .
President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration
has been restructured in an attempt to prioritize
health and safety amid the COVID-19 pandemic. .
The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced
the new details about the January 20 event on Sunday. .
In lieu of the day’s usual events, Biden’s
inauguration will reportedly feature a
virtual parade and a “presidential escort.” .
The virtual parade will include performers that represent
the “diversity, heritage, and resilience” of the U.S.
It will also utilize “new ways” to allow Americans
from across the country to participate. .
The escort will include representatives
of each military branch and provide the nation
with “historic images” of Biden. .
It is unclear whether Biden will proceed from
the U.S. Capitol to the White House entirely by car or
on foot for at least a portion of the journey. .
The committee hopes the condensed and
virtual elements of Biden's inauguration will
help prevent "large crowds and gatherings."
