"I'm actually not going to watch the Hall of Fame ceremony. On the scale of sadness from 1 to 10, I'm finally at least at a 2 now. That would bring it back to a 7, 8, 9 and I can't right now. So I don't want to see old highlights that I'm already watching now."
While the Coronavirus has been delaying plans for many things the ceremony as for now is still expected to go down on August 29th.
