FDA Employee Health Policy Tool

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) developed this Employee Health Policy Tool to encourage practices that can help prevent the transmission of foodborne viruses and bacteria in food establishments from ill employees. This tool will help users navigate restriction and exclusion requirements identified in Part 2-201 of the 2022 FDA Food Code using clickable pathways dependent upon the role of the user and the symptoms and/or diagnoses presented.

For questions about specific employee health policy provisions in the FDA Food Code, please see Part 2-201 of the Food Code and/or contact your FDA Retail Food Specialist. Please follow your state/local/tribal/territorial health codes for employee health policies applicable to your location.
