Primaries are not required by the DNC rules. State party organizations can choose to select their delegates by a convention process. Four states did that instead of hold Democratic primaries in 2012 when Obama had no major challenger.

You obviously can't have one giant in person convention (Coronafest2020!). A little creativity makes doing it remotely seem like a reasonable workaround.
