A COVID Graduation


Title (Dublin Core)

A COVID Graduation

Description (Dublin Core)

I found this story of an in-person graduation to be a bit tragic story. This is because people wanted to believe that COVID was simply ignored in some states. While living in NC we had people that felt that it was just too little risk to slow down large gatherings, we also had restrictions that prevented this exact behavior. I saw many people were doing graduations online, and some were just not even having graduations at all. But this article shows that there was an attempt to hold this ceremony with indications that people were maybe encouraged to wear masks, but they were not mandatory. While there is no indication of more COVID positive people after the graduation, there is a sense of dread to have to go be tested especially after what should be a cause for celebration.

This is a story about a high school graduating class that had an in-person graduation and shortly after, someone tested positive for COVID. I found this online on a local Jacksonville news station which had a link to the school’s Facebook page.
