Goudy Commons to reopen indoor dining
Goudy Commons will be reopening indoor dining now that Marion County has [moved] to the “high risk” category. “High risk” counties are [allowed] indoor dining with some capacity limits. Willamette’s Vice President of Student Affairs, Lisa Landreman, sent out an email at 5:35 p.m. on Feb. 25 announcing the comeback of indoor dining for Goudy and the new capacity limits. Only 25 students will be allowed in the serving area and 50 students will be allowed in the seating area at a time. Landreman said the furniture will be arranged for proper spacing and there will be signs indicating if the table has been sanitized. Grab and go food service will still be available. Landreman did not mention when indoor dining will start. The Feb. 25 dinner service, which started at 5 p.m., did not contain indoor seating.
There was no word on the indoor dining tent from the Fall 2020 semester that was [taken down] at the start of the Spring 2021 Semester. The Reopening Committee had said it was unlikely the tent would be brought back even if restrictions were changed.
