The court said that as a precaution, Kavanaugh would not attend the investiture ceremony for Justice Barrett. The ceremony was delayed because of a pandemic. More than two dozen people who attended President Trump’s announcement at the White House of Barrett as his nominee in September 2020 later tested positive for an illness.
