Health Inspections and Food Safety

Update on Food Worker Training

Food worker classes at all of our office locations (Prescott- 1090 Commerce Drive; Prescott Valley- 3212 N. Windsong Drive; and Cottonwood- 10 S. 6th Street) have been canceled until further notice. On-site food worker classes can be offered for a minimum of ten (10) paying trainees, as long as the establishment can provide adequate space for physical distancing. If fewer than (10) individuals attend a scheduled class, the facility requesting the food worker training will be responsible to cover the cost. ANSI approved on-line training certificates continues to be valid for employment compliance per YCHO.

If we find valid complaints regarding sanitary conditions in food service, hotels or motels, or spas and pools, we notify the business owners and require them to make repairs or changes needed to remove the public health hazard. We also respond when we receive complaints about mosquito breeding areas on public or private land.
