Joe Biden’s chief of staff on Sunday said the Democratic challenger’s inauguration would have to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think it’s going to definitely have to be changed,” Klain said during an appearance on ABC News.

“We started some consultations with House and Senate leadership on that. Obviously, this is not going to be the same kind of inauguration we had in the past.”

Several news outlets have called the race for Biden. Newsmax has yet to project a winner, citing close races in several battleground states. President Donald Trump has refused to concede as his legal team continues to battle the counts in court.

When asked whether there would be parades, a big crowd on the Mall and lunch inside the rotunda, Klain responded: “I’m going to let those plans unfold in consultation with folks in the Capitol who organize that, with the experts who plan that. You know, we ran a very effective and I think engaging Democratic convention this year in August, in a way that was safe for the people to participate and watch it in a way that communicates with the American people.”
