From Town & Country

Between protections put into place due to the the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, and security measures taken following the insurrection at the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob earlier this month, Joe Biden's inauguration is going to look a significantly different from those in years past. But it will be an inauguration, and a transition of power none-the-less.

Notably, there will not be a parade following in the swearing-in ceremony, but rather a virtual celebration to keep crowds to a minimum. Using the program at the Democratic National Convention last year as a jumping off point, the inaugural committee shares that the digital event will "celebrate America's heroes, highlight Americans from all walks of life in different states and regions, and reflect on the diversity, heritage, and resilience of the country as we begin a new American era," and will have the theme: "America United."
