This week we re-opened several communal kitchens within our residence halls that were deemed safe for use by students in those residential communities. The following communal kitchens are now open: Berry (3rd floor kitchen), McAlister (1st floor lounge), College Lodge (1st floor laundry area), Rutledge Rivers (1st floor lounge), and McConnell (4th floor kitchen).

Safety remains our priority, so we are implementing the following rules and regulations for kitchen usage:
• Masks must be worn at ALL times when in the kitchen area.
• Students must return to their individual room/suite to remove their masks and eat their food
• Capacity limits must be followed as posted in your kitchen space.
• Kitchen use is only permitted between 7am and 8pm
• All students must bring their own pots/pans/utensils and dishwashing materials for use in the kitchen
• All surfaces must be wiped down before and after use with the provided sanitation supplies

We would like to acknowledge Residence Hall Association (@cofcrha) for their advocacy regarding this initiative.

We hope that kitchen usage will further the sense of community and healthy living within our residence halls. Thank you for your patience as we have worked through the process of reopening these spaces safely.
