Dog Friendly Outdoor Dining

Due to health concerns associated with pets, food facilities that wish to accommodate customers with dogs in outside areas/patios must submit an Operational Plan and Waiver for approval from the Washoe County Health District to allow for modifications to the Regulations of the Washoe County District Board of Health Governing Food Establishments.
