CCHHS Enhanced Food Handler’s Certification Program

As businesses re-open and Coconino County residents return to the consumer market, COVID-19 safety continues to be a primary concern. Coconino County Health and Human Services (CCHHS), in conjunction with Northern Arizona University, has developed a science-based and academically vetted program, the Enhanced Food Handler’s Certification, designed to address safety concerns of the public and to help food service establishments return to successful and profitable operations.

The CCHHS Enhanced Food Handler’s Certification represents the most current health guidance directly related to preventing the spread of COVID-19. The recommended practices stem from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and are designed to increase the safety to guests, employees and our community.
