The Snohomish Health District works with community partners to ensure the safety of food and prevent illness at food businesses. We've received questions from food businesses about novel coronavirus 2019.

A document with guidance and frequently asked questions for food workers is available at This information is based on current understanding of the virus, and guidance may change. Check or for updates.

Remember that the most important steps in preventing the spread of this disease are the same as with other illnesses:
• wash hands thoroughly and frequently with warm running water and soap,
• keep surfaces and equipment washed and sanitized, and
• stay home if you are feeling ill.

Thank you for helping keep Snohomish County safe and healthy.
