The National Restaurant Association’s ServSafe has partnered with the Food and Drug Administration, public health officials, industry representatives, academia, the Conference for Food Protection and Ecolab Inc., to create protocols for restaurants to reopen safely.

The document incorporates best practices on food safety, health and hygiene, cleaning and sanitizing, and social distancing. Additionally, it incorporates recommendations from the FDA’s just-released Best Practices for Retail Food Stores, Restaurants, and Food Pick-Up/Delivery Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The guidance offers instruction on how to begin serving customers in partial- and full-service capacities. The National Restaurant Association encourages combining the guidelines with existing corporate policies, the FDA Food Code, ServSafe training and recommendations from local health officials.
