President-elect Joe Biden is set to meet in Delaware with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.
A Biden transition official confirms that Pelosi and Schumer are travelling to Wilmington to meet with the president-elect in person on Friday.
The official wasn't authorized to share internal planning and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday.
Biden spoke with the pair by phone last week about the intensifying pandemic and prospects for passage of a COVID-19 relief bill in the lame duck session of Congress.
Biden has made addressing the virus his top priority as he moves forward with his transition.
The meeting comes as President Donald Trump continues to spread misinformation and sow doubt about an election that he lost to Biden.
The Trump administration is blocking the Biden team from the official intelligence briefing traditionally afforded to incoming presidents and from collaborating with its coronavirus response team.
