HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Henrico County Public Schools has expanded access to in-person graduations for the class of 2021.

More family members will be able to attend graduations, will be given the option to sit more closely and will not require mask-wearing.

Each graduate will now be able to invite eight guests, increased from four guests, given the new guidance from state officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

No matter their vaccination status, attendees may still choose to wear a mask and maintain physical distancing at the events, although the governor encourages those who are not fully vaccinated, to still wear masks in public places.
