WMU DINING Safe Service Precautions

Dining Services is intentional about maintaining a safe dining environment for the campus community. The following precautionary procedures are in place:

  • Daily health screening of all Dining employees.
  • Face masks worn by all Dining employees; guests are required to wear face coverings in all dining locations, except when seated and eating. Guests may ask to speak to the manager at the welcome desk if they do not have a face
    mask or are not medically able to wear a face coverings so arrangements are made to safely serve the guest.
  • Physical distancing of 6' guidelines by guests with reminders posted throughout serving areas, dining areas and lobbies; employees observe physical distancing during shifts and breaks.
  •  Occupancy limits in dining locations to allow physical distancing to occur.
  •  Serving or plating all choices (eliminating buffet style and self-service stations).
  •  Cleaning and disinfection processes conducted three times daily, to include additional diligent staff training on infection prevention protocols.

Effective Fall 2020:

  • In-person dining areas set up to allow 6' distancing between tables and a reduction of 50% of seating from established seating plan.

  • Online ordering and delivery of meals to students residing on campus in COVID-19 isolation or quarantine rooms.

  • Grab'n Go options for lunch, snack and dinner.

  • Development of an online carryout and pick-up service to help minimize direct person-to-person contact.
