Halted because of the coronavirus pandemic, food handler safety training will resume Monday, according to the Southern Nevada Health District.
Services will be available by appointment only.
First-time food handler safety training card applicants can make an appointment by calling 702-759-0595.
New applicants will have until Dec. 31 to obtain a card. Food facilities will not receive demerits if a first-time applicant is working without a card, according to an SNHD news release.
Appointments for clients seeking a renewal or duplicate card will be available after Jan. 1. Renewing applicants will not be subject to late fees, and businesses will not receive demerits for employees working with an expired card. The moratorium on the regulation will expire June 30. Beginning July 1, facilities will be assigned demerits if staff members are not in compliance and do not possess a current food handler safety training card.
