Beginning Friday, students will be required to show a green campus access badge on their eTang portal in order to enter Cal Dining facilities. 

A green badge indicates the student has been filling out their Daily Symptom Screener and is complying with the monthly COVID-19 testing requirement in effect for all campus housing residents, according to an email from Cal Dining. 

The email added that the badge system follows the new city of Berkeley health order requiring proof of vaccination when entering businesses serving food and drink indoors.

To-go food options will be available outside of dining halls for those who do not have a green campus access badge, the email noted. 

“You may experience longer than normal lines or wait times as our staff will need to check badges at the door and arrange for to-go options outside the dining commons,” the email stated. 

The email concluded with a reminder to show your badge, wear a face covering and maintain social distancing when inside dining areas.
