Safety Guidance for Food Stands and Bake Sales in 2021

Submitted by Karen Blakeslee

Although the US FDA, USDA, and US CDC have all recently reaffirmed that there is no evidence of COVID transmission from food or food packaging/utensils, people operating food stands and bake sales still need to utilize practices to mitigate COVID transmission (and ensure food safety, as always) in their planning for such events.

The best practices listed below are recommendations only for COVID safety. It is important to note that local governments retain the authority to impose more restrictive orders or provisions related to COVID. Therefore always check with your local government frequently to ensure you are using the most recent COVID-related rules and regulations for your area.
