Dunkirk: No restrictions on graduation ceremony

The Dunkirk City School District announced Friday afternoon it is ending restrictions on commencement spectators for the June 26 ceremonies at Karl Hoeppner Field.

“Due to recent guidance received from the Chautauqua County Health Department, there will be no restrictions placed on the number of guests which may attend the 2021 Graduation Ceremony,” the district stated in a press release.

The release quoted the relevant section of the latest state COVID-19 guidance as follows:

“As announced by Governor Cuomo on June 15, 2021, MOST COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted as 70 percent of New Yorkers aged 18 or older have received the first dose of their COVID-19 vaccination series. As New York surpassed that threshold, the State’s health guidelines — including social gathering limits, capacity restrictions, social distancing, cleaning and disinfection, health screening, and contact information for tracing–will become optional for most industries, including pre-K-12 education end of year events, provided however there is one exception that continues to apply to end of academic year celebrations: Masks are still required for unvaccinated individuals, pursuant to federal CDC guidelines.”
