Occupancy tracking services: A new feature on the campus maps website enables people to see how busy dining locations on campus are to help avoid busy times. Developed by RIT’s Information and Technology Services, a layer has been added that will monitor density of dining locations by reporting the number of Wi-Fi signals being used at any given time. Pie charts show whether an area is quiet or busy. No identities are tracked. The data is aggregated and anonymized and refreshes every couple of minutes.
Reduced occupancy: All dining locations are limited to no more than 50 percent of maximum occupancy.
Unit configurations: Furniture in dining locations has been arranged to promote physical distancing. In addition, foot traffic patterns may be changed.
Protective shields: Protective shields have been installed at serving stations and registers.
Enhanced cleaning: Several hand sanitizer stations are available and enhanced cleaning and hygiene protocols are being incorporated.
Face masks: Face masks must be worn by all employees and customers except when eating.
