What Dr. Tammy Penhollow can say in an interview:

  1. Coronavirus is not known to be a foodborne illness. The virus does not grow on food. No known cases have been traced to handling food packaging, cooking, or consuming food. The risks are related to touching your face after handling a surface that has droplet particles of the virus on it, such as tabletops, chairs, food packages, and silverware. Avoidance of this risk is to wash your hands with soap and warm water prior to eating, and using hand sanitizer between washings, and if any of the above surfaces are touched during the meal.  
  2. Specific measures students can take when dining on campus include: 
      • Eat outdoors if possible.  
      • Distance between people at the table.  
      • Wear a mask up until the time you are ready to start eating, and put it back on immediately when finished eating.  

      • Consider bringing your own silverware (can be put in a small container for transport to/from the cafeteria and washed with soap and warm water between uses).  
      • Do not share dishes/glasses/silverware. Gone may be the days of eating off of your buddy’s plate, trying a sip or a bite of someone else’s meal, or splitting a pizza.  
      • Consider only choosing individually wrapped servings with plastic wrapping over them, rather than using the buffet style line where people use the same serving utensils. Hopefully all of this has been addressed by the cafeteria staff and only gloved, masked, and aproned staff are plating all foods as individual students  move through the serving line. After unwrapping your food onto the plate, use hand sanitizer before eating.  
      • Do not go out in public, including to the cafeteria if you feel unwell.
