Infectious Disease Training for Farmers Markets Scheduled for January 5, 2021

New safety standards from the VA Department of Labor and Industry require farmers markets to:

1. Create a check-in protocol for symptoms and exposure before each shift <all businesses>

2. Develop an infectious disease plan <businesses with 11 or more employees/volunteers>

3. Create a coronavirus 101 training for employees and volunteers with a completion certificate offered at the end of the training <all businesses>

To assist farmers markets in complying with this mandate, VAFMA is offering a training class that will walk market managers through the steps of compliance. Our emergency services consultant, Paul Helmuth, will guide attendees through the requirements and how they apply to farmers markets.

Date/Time: January 5, 2021 from 6pm – 10pm

Cost: $150 for members; $225 for non-members
