President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration: Date, tickets and everything we know so far. President Trump says he won’t attend the the 59th inaugural ceremonies, which will draw far, far smaller crowds due to COVID-19 precautions. There will be plenty of ways to attend virtually, however.

President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration: Date, tickets and everything we know so far

President-elect Joe Biden has already started laying out plans for critical issues like COVID-19 relief and fighting climate change. But before the new administration gets to work later this month, everything will kick off with an inauguration at the US Capitol in Washington, DC, where Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be sworn in.

The 59th inaugural ceremonies are expected to look noticeably different than in years past due to surging COVID-19 cases. Plus, while past presidents traditionally attend the ceremony, President Donald Trump said — shortly before his Twitter account was permanently suspended — that he won’t be there. Here’s what we know so far.

When is the inauguration?

The inauguration will take place Wednesday, Jan. 20, on the west front of the US Capitol in Washington, DC. Each elected US president’s term starts at noon on that day, according to the 20th Amendment to the Constitution. The president-elect is required to take the oath of office before assuming duties. Following the presidential swearing-in ceremony, Biden will deliver his inaugural address.

What time will it be and how can I watch?

No exact air time has been announced just yet, though opening remarks historically take place around 11:30 ET/8:30 a.m. PT. The inauguration is likely to be streamed by every major news station, in addition to being shared on platforms like Facebook Live, Twitter and YouTube. It will be impossible to miss, but we’ll update this information when we know more.

What will Biden do first?

The president-elect says one of his biggest priorities is working to tackle COVID-19. Biden and Harris have already announced the formation of a COVID-19 advisory board to help shape the upcoming administration’s response to the pandemic. The board consists of 13 public health experts and will be led by co-chairs Dr. David Kessler, a former Food and Drug Administration commissioner; Dr. Vivek Murthy, a former US surgeon general; and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, a researcher at Yale university.

Biden has also unveiled a plan that aims to ensure the US achieves a 100% clean-energy economy and net-zero emissions by 2050. During the presidential debates, Biden promised to get the US back into the Paris climate deal, which the US withdrew from under Trump. He reiterated that promise in his climate plan.
