What are good hygiene practices, when working in a food facility?
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water (100°F minimum). When washing hands, make sure you include the backs of your hands, in between your fingers, and under your fingernails. Hands should be washed for a minimum of 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. The virus can enter through your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze, and stay home if you are sick. Food facility employees must stay home if you have a fever or a cough.
