York Technical College believes that the health and well-being of Students, employees and guests are of utmost importance to our mission. The College’s Crisis Management Team continues to monitor our internal data as well as that of the CDC and S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) data to make informed decisions regarding the need for adding or easing COVID-19 safety measures. As we will be guests on the Winthrop Campus, The College will abide by any required COVID-19 safety protocols that govern the use of the Coliseum at Winthrop University. We anticipate that the guidelines listed below will be applicable for our graduation ceremonies in May 2023 but our College's Crisis Management Team will continue to monitor the situation.
Mandatory Face Masks for Students and Commencement GuestsAll students and guests must wear face masks for entry into the arena and participation. The College will provide masks to all students. Students are
not allowed to wear their own mask. Students unwilling to wear the mask that the college provides will not be able to participate in Commencement. This requirement will be monitored by our Dean of Students office, like the requirement for our commencement
attire. Students and their guests must comply with the mask requirement or remain ineligible to participate and remain in the arena. COVID-19 Symptoms If a student or their guests are feeling any COVID-19 symptoms,
please stay home. You are advised to seek medical attention if your symptoms are severe or persistent. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include one or more of the following:

ceremony and arena. Students and guests are to stay distanced, follow floor markings and the directions of York Technical College and Winthrop University event staff.
