SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Rep. Chris Stewart will not be attending President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday after he was exposed to COVID-19 and developed symptoms of the virus, according to a spokesperson.

Officials said Stewart developed symptoms the day of his flight to Washington, D.C., forcing him to change his travel plans.

“Rep. Stewart had every intention of attending President-elect Biden’s inauguration as he wished to show unity as we peacefully transition power,” officials said.

“I wish the new administration well as they begin their service to our great nation tomorrow afternoon,” Stewart said in a tweet.
