Biden inauguration a scaled-down celebration amid pandemic and extraordinary security

Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. The inauguration activities were scaled back because of the pandemic as well as heightened security measures arising from the Capitol riot two weeks ago. Donald Trump left Washington before the inauguration, the first president to skip his successor's ceremony in more than 150 years.
