UNL will require COVID tests for graduates attending commencement

Pomp, circumstance and a COVID-19 test for good measure.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduates planning to attend commencement next month will be required to receive a negative COVID-19 test one to three days before the ceremony.

A negative test is required regardless of the graduate’s vaccination status, according to the university’s website. Guests will not have to be tested.

In-person commencement ceremonies will take place May 7 and 8. Face coverings and social distancing are required for all who attend.

The University of Nebraska at Omaha, which has graduation ceremonies planned for May 7 and 10, so far has not announced mandatory testing for graduates attending in person.

According to the UNO website, “if at any point between now and the scheduled ceremonies COVID-19 trends present an increased risk for safety, (the university) will modify (its) planning and update graduates and campus community.”

Masks will be required.,
