Dining hall employees will be following Department of Health guidelines in terms of safely serving food. Employees will wear masks, and diners will be asked to wear masks, as well, when they are not seated at tables.

Directional signage on the floors will show diners where to stand to remain socially distanced at six feet apart when waiting to order. Fewer self-serve items will be available, and many items that were previously self-serve will instead be served by dining hall staff.
