What is Food Safety?
Our mission in the food safety program of the Jefferson County Health Department is to ensure food is handled safely for all populations. This is accomplished by inspecting food facilities, whether temporary or permanent, and educating food handlers.
To learn about proper food safety, just watch the short video below and follow the directions to receive your TB skin test. To receive your food handlers card complete the questionnaire below and click submit. Your food handlers card will be issued when you return to the health department to have your TB skin test read. Be sure to include your name on the questionnaire before submitting. There is a $10 fee for your food handlers card and a $5 replacement fee.
