Don't Work While Sick
Don't Work When Ill

The Food Protection Program strives to maintain the highest level of food safety in Washoe County for locals and visitors alike. Staff conducts annual inspections of food establishments including restaurants, food manufacturers, temporary food establishments and mobile food operations to determine compliance with current food safety regulations and practices. Food Protection Program staff also work collaboratively with members of the Communicable Diseases and Epidemology to investigate complaints and outbreaks. All inspection reports are available on this website to assist the public in making informed decisions on the food safety practices of local establishments. Useful resources for operators are also listed below to help local business operators and support best practices for food preparation.
