US election: Joe Biden pushes forward with plans for office
What's Biden's pandemic plan?
The president-elect is vowing a major shift in the way the White House approaches coronavirus after Mr Trump repeatedly downplayed its gravity and resisted public health measures including wearing masks and social distancing.
The Biden team said it would ensure all Americans had access to regular and free testing and provide "clear, consistent, evidence-based guidance" to communities.
Mr Biden also wants rules mandating the wearing of masks across the country, which he says would save thousands of lives. He plans to call on every American to wear a mask when they are around people outside their own household and wants state governors and local authorities to make this obligatory.
The president-elect has regularly appeared in public wearing a mask while Mr Trump has largely avoided doing so.
Trump 'not planning to concede'
The BBC projected Mr Biden's victory on Saturday after gains in the key battlegrounds of Pennsylvania and Nevada propelled him over the 270 electoral college vote threshold required to clinch the White House.
Mr Trump has not spoken in public since the numbers were announced, but he has repeated previous claims of voter fraud in tweets, which Twitter soon marked as a "disputed" claim. The Trump campaign has indicated their candidate does not plan to concede.
After Mr Biden was projected to win Mr Trump remained defiant, saying Mr Biden was "falsely posing as the winner" and insisting the election was "far from over". The president took more than 70 million votes, the second-highest tally in history.
