Drive-in, drive-through or modified in-person ceremonies are allowed starting July 6. The ceremonies must be held outdoors, and people must stick to social distancing protocols.
The number of attendees is limited to the number of people allowed at in-person gatherings on the day of the ceremony. The executive order currently limits that to 25 people.

Large graduation classes may also have to be broken up into smaller ceremonies to limit crowds and allow for cleaning.
