NC State Extension has compiled resources that provide best practices for preparing for COVID-19 and managing risk for individuals at home and for food environments such as restaurants, grocery stores, and farms. These resources are based on guidance and best practices as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The resources include shareable graphics for posting to social media, plus fact sheets for food service establishments, grocery stores, food banks, and more.
