‘Essential workers of Duke’: Marketplace staff keep East Campus dining hall open in pandemic

Much has changed in the East Campus dining hall. Indoor seating is closed for students. Most tables and chairs are wrapped in caution tape. Stickers line the floor, indicating the direction students should travel and the six-foot distance they should keep while standing in line. Workers praised Duke's overall efforts to keep the virus spreading, but said they have been tested infrequently and questioned the decision to put a testing location in the same building.
