I have been told I have a Medium-Risk food estab lishment. I have a very limited menu at this time. May I apply for a waiver from this requirement to have a Certified Food Handler?
Yes, you may apply in writing for a waiver from the requirement. However, the granting of a waiver for Medium-Risk food establishments will be the exception, not the rule, and if you handle any raw meats such as chicken or beef, a waiver will not be given.
