Covid-19 Updates

Your safety is our top priority here at Racer Dining. We closely monitor COVID-19 guidelines directed by Centers for Disease Control and government officials to make sure we are bringing you the most up-to-date information as we continue to navigate through the pandemic. Our teams have worked diligently to implement robust policies and procedures aimed at keeping our students and staff safe. To take a look at everything we are doing, please click through the topics below.

  • Students, faculty, and staff are required to wear a mask when entering a dining facility or standing in a dining line.
  • Masks are required to be worn until the patron sits down at a table. When the individual is seated, they may take off their mask. 
  • Masks are also required to be worn when the patron gets up from the table.
  • Contact surfaces such as counters, kiosk screens, and door handles cleaned continually throughout the day with antivirus solution.
  • All locations with seating will be closed for 30 minutes between meal periods so our staff has an opportunity to deep clean and sanitize the facility.
