DPHSS issued new guidance providing general requirements and restrictions for social distancing, cleaning and disinfecting, with mandates for all graduation ceremonies other than the “Grad and Go” concept.
If a graduation ceremony is to be held indoors, the total number of persons shall be limited to no more than 50 percent occupancy load with seating provided the indoor area can maintain the required physical distance.
all schools and IHEs planning to have an indoor or outdoor graduation ceremony are required to develop and submit a detailed Covid-19 mitigation plan to DPHSS at least 14 days prior to the scheduled graduation ceremony. All plans should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Schools that anticipate holding graduation ceremonies sooner than 14 days from today are to contact the DPHSS Division of Environmental Health immediately. Failure to comply will place schools and IHEs in noncompliance with DPHSS guidance that may result in penalties and/or fines.
