ServSafe Updates

April 2, 2020

Processing for both ServSafe Food Safety Manager and Alcohol Manager print exams has been halted as of March 20 due to the Illinois Shelter-in-Place order (ServSafe’s headquarters state). The Shelter-in-Place order is in effect until April 3 and if lifted, ServSafe will be able to resume grading print exams on April 6. In-person classes at RAMW will resume to our posted schedule at the time the DC Stay-at-Home Order is lifted.

To help keep you and your employees safe, ServSafe is offering the online Food Handler, COVID-19 Takeout and COVID-19 Delivery courses, for free at now through April 30. Take advantage of this offer to get the essential training every restaurant and foodservice worker needs to keep diners and themselves safe.

Additionally, the new ServSuccess Restaurant Professional and Restaurant Supervisor Learning Suites will also be offered free of charge at through April 30. ServSuccess certifications provide restaurant employees a way to demonstrate and restaurant employers a way to gauge the skills, competencies and knowledge required for jobs in the industry.

As a reminder, DC DOH is not issuing Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) certificates, therefore they will not take any negative action for those not in possession of a newly expired CFPM.  When operations are normal again DOH will give facilities 30 days to obtain their CFPM. At this time, they are also only conducting complaint and/or emergency inspections.
