The fanfare that traditionally comes hand in glove with Inauguration Day is expected to be scaled back due to the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus pandemic, President-elect Joe Biden has said.

With COVID cases continuing to increase and states imposing restrictions, Biden’s presidential inaugural committee is looking at how to control the crowds who usually gather on Ball and along the parade route from the Capitol to the White House, NBC reported.

The committee will also look at the best way to hold smaller indoor events that are usually a staple for the day, such as the congressional luncheon in the Capitol’s National Statuary Hall and the balls attended by the new president and first lady.

Biden said he expects the event on January 20 to resemble the 2020 Democratic National Convention, which was held virtually. He said the committee was in talks with the leadership of the House of Representatives and the Senate about how to plan the celebrations.
