The convention is slated for the week of Aug. 17. It was postponed from July 13-16 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Perez told reporters on a telephone call Thursday that they are planning for an in-person convention, but "at the same time, we do not put our public health heads in the sand."
Biden has been more circumspect, stating that the convention might have to be entirely virtual.
