COVID-19 Food Safety Resources

— Written By and last updated by

COVID-19 has impacted agriculture large and small from every angle, from the temporary closing of restaurants, addressing labor health and availability, and implementation of additional precautions to prevent exposure to workers and customers throughout the chain.

Below are some COVID-19 Food Safety Resources from NC State University. This list is intended to provide management options by which the safety of workers can be enhanced to prevent spread of COVID-19 as it relates to produce farms, migrant farmworkers, food processing facilities, and food safety information for farmers markets, U-Pick, farm stands, and washing produce. These recommendations should be viewed in addition to existing worker safety and health plans required by the NC Department of labor. Special thanks to Area Specialized Food Safety Specialist, Dr. Chip Simmons, for compiling this list of resources to support the industry.
