Do you place a comma after the year when writing the date in a sentence?

I need to write a date in a sentence and would like to know the proper way to do so.

A comma should be used after the year when a date is included in a sentence only if (1) that date is not inadverted (i. e. day before month), and (2) the date includes a month, a date and a year.

A comma is placed after the year as long as a full date is being used. No comma is required for month-day or month-year references.
