It's truly sad to see the kids masked up at the ceremony when the venue is already outdoors and the kids socially distanced. I've seen recent videos and photos from graduation ceremonies in other states from May 2021, with the parents sitting shoulder to shoulder, indoors in some, and none of the kids, teachers, and parents in masks. The Principals of the high schools and Presidents of the college/university were shaking hands and hugging the graduates. It looked like pre-pandemic normal. Did those non-California graduates and their families experience an outbreak of cases, hospitalization, and/or deaths?
