Safety Guidelines and Protocols
Safety is our top priority. Campus Dining is closely monitoring COVID-19 recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with guidance from federal, state and local officials. We are also working closely with MIT Medical and MIT Emergency Management to implement campus-specific policies and protocols aimed at creating a safer dining environment for the entire campus community. Below, please find information about some of the many steps we are taking to help ensure a safer dining environment, and to proactively prevent the spread of the virus.
