Get Certified in Food Safety Management & Get Your Northern Virginia Certified Food Manager (NVCFM) Card in One Day!
The Code of the County of Fairfax, Virginia requires all food establishments operating within the County to be under the immediate control of a Certified Food Manager during all hours of operation. Limited food establishments (those which typically serve hotdogs or frankfurter-type foods, prepackaged foods or other types of food that are not potentially hazardous) must be under the immediate control of, at a minimum, a Certified Limited Food Manager during all hours of operation. Arlington County, Virginia and the City of Alexandria, Virginia have similar codes in place. The ultimate objective is to improve the health and well-being of the general public and provide additional protection against outbreaks of foodborne illness and other afflictions/health conditions directly related to food safety and sanitation.
