The restaurant industry has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. Food service operations have turned to alternate ways of doing business through takeout and delivery, and now, many are cautiously beginning the process of reopening their dining rooms as states loosen stay-at-home restrictions.
While food safety has always been important to restaurants, it is more crucial than ever before that every restaurant professional understands and practices enhanced measures to keep guests and employees safe.
