On Thursday, August 5, UVM made an announcement effective immediately, requiring all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear a mask or face covering indoors. Face coverings will be required at all times for all attendees at the Class of 2020 Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, August 14 in Patrick Gymnasium. Please plan accordingly.
The university expects that participants and attendees will be fully vaccinated (including graduates).
“Fully vaccinated” means it has been 14 days since your final vaccine dose. The day you received your final vaccination is considered Day 0. For a two-dose vaccine, you are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after you received your second dose. For a single-dose vaccine, you are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving your one dose.
Graduates and guests should not come to the ceremony site if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
