Dining and Break Areas

Practice good hygiene by washing your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water before and after eating. Employees are encouraged to take social and lunch breaks within their office or workspace or in less-crowded spaces outdoors. Maintain 6 feet physical distancing.

Where access to shared refrigerators, microwaves, and coffeemakers exists, either remove/close access to the units or follow these best practices to prevent the potential spread of the virus:

  • Where possible, move units at least 6 feet apart. Otherwise, limit the number permitted to use to one employee at a time. The occupancy limit should be placed on the door to the break room or in the vicinity of the units.
  • Wash hands prior to and after use of the units.
  • Wipe all surfaces including tables, counters, refrigerator handles, coffeemakers, microwave handles, etc. before and after use with approved EPA disinfectant or alcohol wipes.
  • Employees may remove masks for eating and drinking only. When eating with others, always maintain 6 feet physical distancing.

Lunch Expectations

Employees are strongly encouraged to bring lunch from home to minimize contact with students. Should employees visit the dining hall, follow all physical distancing guidelines and signage in place.
