Additional COVID-19 Food Service Guidance

As the COVID-19 situation evolves across our state, we have been receiving questions about what to do if a food service employee tests positive or is a presumptive positive. I have attached a guidance document we developed to address this.

Also, in an effort to help local health departments and establishments with the changing takeout and curb side pick-up business model, we have developed a handout that might be useful. I have attached this in both color and black and white for ease of printing.

All of our resources have been posted to our Emergency Preparedness Website, found here: []

Please let me know if you have any questions.
