Even if you have a food worker card, you are not permitted to work with food if you have:
- Continual sneezing, coughing, or runny nose
- Diagnosed infections that can be spread through food, such as salmonella, shigella, E coli, or hepatitis A
- Diarrhea, vomiting, or jaundice
- Infected, uncovered wounds
Sick food workers should go home or be given duties that do not involve handling food, such as taking out the trash, cleaning restrooms, or busing tables.
