At the guidance of Infection Prevention, cafes at Methodist Health System hospitals will be returning to some pre-pandemic guidelines.

Beginning Monday, June 14, several Methodist cafes will:

  • Reopen salad bars
  • Allow refillable cups at fountain machines
  • Resume normal catering, including buffets

These changes apply to cafes at Methodist Hospital, Methodist Women's Hospital and Methodist Fremont Health. 

The above changes to salad bars and catering do not apply to the cafe at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital. Updates on those guidelines at Jennie Edmundson are expected in the coming weeks.

Please note the following guidance and restrictions that remain:

  • People visiting salad bars should practice proper hand hygiene before serving themselves.
  • Diners should continue to wear masks until being seated to eat.
  • Diners should continue to limit themselves to four per table and maintain 6 feet of space.
