From the EIU Commencement Website
Under State of Illinois COVID-19 guidelines, O’Brien Stadium may have a capacity of 20% to ensure appropriate social distancing is maintained. Each student will receive a limited number of tickets for guests, which will be announced on April 9. Each ceremony also will be live-streamed with WEIU-TV. All patrons and graduates must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose at all times when entering and moving around O’Brien field. All seating in the venue is set for social distancing and pods of seating and designated areas are marked off.
Weather-related decisions will be made by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 7. In the case of inclement weather, there will be an opportunity for a walk-through commencement at designated campus areas from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 8.
