The National Restaurant Association and ServSafe debuted the ServSafe Dining Commitment, a program that allows operators to showcase their ongoing commitment to the health and safety of their employees and guests.
Through this voluntary program, operators commit to best practices that are effective means to reduce the spread of COVID-19 as guests and employees return to on-premises dining:
- Following National Restaurant Association Reopening Guidance and/or corporate brand guidelines, which are based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Food & Drug Administration guidelines.
- Following coronavirus-based laws and guidelines set by their state and local municipalities.
- Making sure there is a minimum of one person per location with a current ServSafe Food Protection Manager certification.
- Making sure employees are trained in ServSafe Food Handler courses and have gone through the ServSafe COVID-19 Reopening training.
Restaurants ready to make the commitment (and gain access to the social media tool kit and decal art to amplify their commitment) can go to ServSafeCommit.org.
