Cafeterias and food courts are hubs of campus life for the entire College community — students, faculty, staff and visitors. New policies and protocols will maintain the continuing high level of food service in these shared spaces while protecting patrons against COVID-19.
On-campus food service providers have developed a “We Care” campaign via Jasper Connect to promote safe, respectful codes of conduct in all on-campus dining facilities and at partnering, off-campus “Jasper Dollar” vendor
Prominent signage, one-way directional mapping and clear pick-up options via well-placed monitors will help to ensure safe, effective social distancing and foot traffic in all food-service venues at Thomas Hall, Kelly Commons and a possible temporary South campus option
Easy-to-follow visual arrangements in all dining facilities will provide clearly labeled “safe places” for seating, which will help to ensure respect and equal access for all patrons
The College will institute protocols for food services deliveries to students who may be asked to self-isolate in designated areas of the residence halls; this will include the safe, timely removal of used plates, cutlery and other waste
To further enhance safety — especially for early-arriving groups including international students and student-athletes — staggered meal-time scheduling will reduce lines and queuing back-ups
