/Are child care employees required to get a food handler safety training card?

The health district does not require child care employees to be screened for tuberculosis, get any vaccinations or get a food handler safety training card unless they are employed to be a food handler.

Employees who work in a child care center kitchen as a food handler, must get a food handler safety training card. Employees who dispense food prepared in the kitchen or other packaged drinks or food are not required to have a food handler safety training card.

However, Nevada Administrative Code NAC 432A.310  require all employees and volunteers of child care centers to receive TB screening. The health district no longer offers TB screening. Clients who need TB screening will need to visit their primary care doctor. If you don’t have a doctor, download the Tuberculosis Testing Locations PDF 158KB flyer for a list of clinics that offer TB testing.
