Eating Safe and Staying Safe During COVID-19

As a Certified Food Safety Manager, I’m always taking precautions to be sure that everyone in the test kitchen is practicing safe food handling. This naturally translates over to what we’re going through right now. COVID-19 has been a rude awakening for everyone. The only comforting thought is that we’re all in this together. Until we can figure out how to outsmart this virus, we can all stay as safe as possible by enforcing a few new behaviors that we should definitely turn into habits.

Here are a few of what I think are the most informative and dependable sites out there that have touched on all the things that are critically important to me.
