January 20th, 2021 was host to the Inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States of America. The event took place at the Capital Building in Washington, DC.
Biden took the Presidential oath of office, followed by Kamala Harris taking the Vice Presidential oath of office. During this unique global situation we all find ourselves currently living in, the ceremony required certain health measures such as mandatory face covering, testing, temperature checks and social distancing to try and protect participants of the ceremony.
