There obviously is much concern from individuals and small business owners regarding the current outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States.
As we keep connected to trusted media sources regarding the outbreak, the constant flow of news and information can seem overwhelming. The NICRA office has been in contact with the International Dairy Foods Assoc (IDFA) and the National Restaurant Association
(NRA) to obtain reliable industry updates and information.
The following websites have been created to advise business owners in the food and dairy industry of the most accurate and current information available to retailers.
Please continue to refer to these sites as reliable sources of guidance and recommendations.
Your local health department will also be a good source of information, as they will advise on information such as:
- Whether your restaurant should be closing
- Whether you should be publishing a statement or modifying your business practices.
