The three oldest United States Supreme Court justices chose not to attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Judges Stephen Breyer, 82; Clarence Thomas, 72; and Samuel Alito, 70, all chose to skip the inauguration, according to Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg. The other six judges were present.

“Several judges chose not to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony in light of the public health risks posed by the COVID pandemic,” Arberg said.
