Connecticut Releases Guidelines For Holding Proms
Officials say high school proms and graduation ceremonies can take place in Connecticut this spring but should observe precautions to avoid becoming super-spreader events.
The state Department of Public Health has released recommendations that include mask-wearing and social distancing even for those who have been vaccinated. Events also should be held outdoors with a scheduled rain date, rather than moving indoors.
Officials say schools holding indoor events should consider reducing capacity. They say events may need to be delayed until later in the school year — or even after the end of the school year — to give more students the opportunity to be vaccinated.
