Title: Update on Campus Dining

Dear Members of the Georgetown University Community,

Given the sustained stabilization and decline in positive cases across our campuses and in the District of Columbia, we’re writing to share that, starting on Monday, February 7, 2022, we will gradually resume indoor dining in all campus dining facilities and other indoor communal areas, following the public health measures below.

  • On Monday, February 7, indoor dining in campus dining facilities will open at 50% capacity until further notice. For information on hours of operation, please visit the Hoya Hospitality website or the Corp website.
  • In line with DC’s COVID-19 vaccination entry requirement for certain businesses, including food establishments, students, faculty and staff will need to show their GOCard to dine in campus dining facilities. Georgetown will use GOCards as proof of identity and satisfaction of the University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement, including any exemption from this requirement granted by the University. Individuals, including visitors, who do not show a GOCard will need to show other proof of vaccination (e.g., CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, or a digital copy or photo of it) and photo identification.
  • Eating and drinking will also be permitted in indoor communal areas (e.g., libraries, lounges), effective Monday, February 7. 
  • Masks may be removed only while sitting and actively eating or drinking. Individuals should keep six feet apart when not wearing a mask indoors. Individuals should wear a properly-fitted, high-quality mask (e.g., N95, KN95), which are available for free at the entrances to many buildings on campus.

Dining together is an important element of building community on campus, so we’re pleased that we’re able to resume indoor dining next week. As we gradually resume in-person activities on campus, we appreciate your continued commitment to protecting our community by getting a booster shot when eligible and wearing a high-quality mask.
