New Car Graduation Protocol Issued by Ventura County Public Health
Now Allows Graduates to Receive Diplomas


Ventura County Public Health (VCPH) today released a revised protocol regarding vehicle celebrations for graduations and other special observances. The protocol has been modified to allow graduates to briefly exit their vehicles on a timed schedule to receive their diplomas. Diplomas may be distributed using a no-contact pick-up method, maintaining physical distancing of six feet or greater. The protocol allows school personnel to take photos of graduates outside of their vehicles. Family members will be permitted to take photos from inside their vehicles.  


The car line must be organized by a designated host who is responsible for ensuring full compliance with the protocol and adherence to the State Health Officer’s Stay at Home Order, which precludes mass gatherings.


The new VCPH protocol is attached or may be downloaded at
