New York State has issued updated guidance for in-person graduation and commencement ceremonies.
Effective May 1, schools, colleges and universities can hold indoor and outdoor events with limited attendee capacity.
This will depend on the size and location (e.g., stadium, arena, arts and entertainment venue) of each.
All venues and organizers must follow the State’s strict health and safety protocols, including:
- face masks
- social distancing
- health screenings
- contact tracing
