Today, Wednesday, January 20, our nation will come together and celebrate the 59th Presidential Inauguration, swearing in Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as Vice President.
In light of recent safety concerns, and following public health guidance amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies has announced that it will significantly limit in-person attendance at the inauguration. The National Mall will also be closed. You can join the largely virtual inauguration ceremonies online or via your local television provider. The ceremonies begin at 10:00 AM.

Alongside the Biden Administration, my colleagues and I in the new Democratic Congress will work to advance several critical priorities for the American people:
In closing, I want to extend warm wishes to you and your families for a safe, healthy, hopeful and prosperous year ahead.
Please remember that my office is always available to help you and your families access important federal services and benefits, like Social Security and Medicare. If you need assistance, please send me an email or call (410) 832-8890 during normal business hours.
