The U.S. Military Academy's Coronavirus Guidance

The U.S. Military Academy has extended the Public Health Emergency aligned with the State of New York and surrounding counties. This declaration reflects the severity of the danger facing our community. Our current operations have focused on protecting the force. Our goal is mitigating the spread of the virus by following recommended preventive measures such as social distancing, frequent hand washing and avoiding close contact with sick individuals.

The Class of 2020 graduation ceremony will be June 13. The ceremony will look different from recent graduation ceremonies because of current social health force protection measures. Decisions regarding family attendance and the scope of the ceremony will be forthcoming and based on the safety of our cadets and the entire West Point community. We will ensure a broadcast of the ceremony is available for viewing.
