COVID-19 Guidance

Guidance to assist food establishments reopening to the public after restrictions from the Governor’s Executive Order are lifted. Dine-in service may resume* (with restrictions) on May 1st.

Please check with your local municipality for rules related to reopening, as they may have additional requirements.

*Note: Bars are listed to reopen during Phase 2 (goal of May 15th) at reduced capacity with physical distancing measures. “Bars” are defined as standalone establishments that primarily serve alcohol (65% or more total sales derive from alcohol). This does not prevent restaurant bars from operating if they are following the restaurant guidance linked above.


The food service inspection program is for the protection of the consumer and of all food goods sold in the state. Its purpose is to reduce the incidence of food-borne illness and provide for a sanitary environment in food service establishments. 

There are three main categories of food facility:

Effective November 1, 2019 - Changes to O.S. §63-1-1118 Sellers of Food (Retail) and O.S. §63-1-1119 Sellers of Food (Manufacturing)
