The White House has been operating under strict social distancing rules, with most administration staffers working from home, mask wearing required throughout the White House complex and limits on the size and duration of in-person meetings in the West Wing.

She later said this wasn't a ceiling, but a bar they were trying to exceed. "Strategies to minimize barriers to accessing vaccination for teachers and other front-line essential workers, such as vaccine clinics at or close to the place of work, are optimal", the CDC stated.

During the town hall, the president also reiterated his opposition to calls by some on the left to defund police departments, and suggested he would be willing to take a piecemeal approach to changing immigration laws. Biden said that he believes the DOJ is independent from the presidency and works for the American people, not for him.

"Sometimes, because things are moving so fast, not because of the burden, it feels like four years", Mr. Biden said.

The trip also comes just three days after the Senate acquitted Trump in his second impeachment trial.
