First Lady Jill Biden will travel to Tokyo for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Summer Games on July 23, leading a delegation that will not include her husband, President Joe Biden, the White House said Tuesday.

Amid flare-ups of the coronavirus pandemic, officials have banned spectators from attending almost all Olympics events and Tokyo has declared a state of emergency lasting until Aug. 22, well after the games close on Aug. 8.

The Olympics, already delayed a year because of COVID-19, are due to run from July 23 to Aug. 8.
