Biden’s inaugural commission tells Americans to stay home before being sworn in

“The footprint of the ceremony will be extremely limited, and the parade that follows will be reshaped,” the committee said, adding that it “urged the public to refrain from traveling and participate in the opening activities from home.”

New members of Biden’s inaugural committee announced Tuesday include chief medical adviser David Kessler, a former Food and Drug Administration commissioner who is co-chair of the president-elect’s coronavirus advisory board.

Stephanie Cutter, a seasoned Democratic agent who led production for the party’s nomination convention in August, will serve as executive producer for the committee, as will television producer Ricky Kirshner, who also oversaw the convention’s programming.

Rod O’Connor, another organizer of previous Democratic National Conventions and a former Energy Department chief of staff during the Obama administration, will serve as senior adviser to the committee.
