The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report there is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 (coronavirus) can be transmitted through food grown in the United States or imported from other countries. However, food safety is important at all times and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture helps to ensure that food is produced and sold in a safe manner. The resources on this page include guidance for Minnesota food establishments operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.
