Restaurants Serving Their Customers Safely

Ready to Serve Safely

Ready to Serve Safely is a formal commitment made by Wisconsin restaurants to take extensive precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in order to provide the safest environment possible for their customers and staff.


In order to be an approved restaurant, a restaurant must commit to the following:

  • Follow FDA, CDC and EPA COVID-19 guidelines
  •  Adhere to Wisconsin and local health department orders or mandates
  •  Employee training on food safety, sanitation and COVID-19 mitigation practices
  •  Adhere to the Wisconsin Restaurant Association pandemic guidance

Please Remember!

While restaurants are doing their best to slow the spread of COVID-19, diners have responsibilities too. Customers are asked to practice social distancing, wear face coverings, wash hands frequently and stay home if they are ill.
