2.  Food Factories and -Businesses

Keeping all workers in the food production and supply chains healthy and safe is critical to surviving the current pandemic. The purpose of these guidelines is to highlight additional measures so that the integrity of the food chain is maintained, and that adequate and safe food supplies are available for consumers.

Coronaviruses cannot multiply in food; they need an animal or human host to multiply. The food industry must reinforce personal hygiene measures and provide refresher training on food hygiene principles to eliminate or reduce the risk of food surfaces and food packaging materials becoming contaminated with the virus from food workers.
