I have a 5 hour layover from a regional to long distance train at Chicago Union Station in a few days and wonder what it's like at the Metropolitan Lounge during the pandemic. Is food available? Will it be uncrowded and I'll have a safe place to wait? Are they doing a thorough cleaning job? Does someone still escorting you to the train? (I have a sleeper.) If anyone has spent time there in the past few months, your insights will be appreciated. I'll be there all afternoon.

Last time I was there, nobody was using the upstairs part. Don't know if it is open now, but it was sure a quiet respite for me.

I was there Friday. The lounge is open as normal but the upstairs is closed, and as far as food and drinks, there was only bottled water available. The downstairs wasn't too crowded.
