To kick off the press briefing, Governor Raimondo spoke about being nominated to serve as Secretary of Commerce for President-elect Biden. She stated that she will continue to serve as Governor of Rhode Island until her nomination is confirmed, which she said could be several weeks.

Governor Raimondo stated that Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott will lead the weekly press briefings beginning next week, hosting a general weekly briefing on Thursday at 1 pm as well as a vaccine specific update during the week as well.
