What does The Jones retail dining area look like?  (updated 10/6/20)

Seating is reduced and set to accommodate social distancing. Two traffic ways are set up for ordering – one walkway for Chick-fil-A guests and one walkway for Einstein or Zen guests.

Additional mitigation measures include:

  • All condiments, napkins and plastic-ware are distributed by employees.
  • Register shields are at all registers.
  • New cups are provided for refills.

Are to-go containers provided at Campus Dining locations?  (updated 10/6/20)

Disposable to-go containers are provided upon request to all guests. First-year freshmen and transfer students are provided with a free reusable to-go container, which also is available to purchase for $7 at Bearcat Commons registers.

To reduce the risk of cross-contamination, employees plate the student’s chosen food items, hand the plate to the student, and the student is responsible for placing the food into the to-go box.
