    • Two staff members must have a valid Level 1 Food Handler Certificate within the previous two years.
    • One staff member must have a current ServSafe or Level 2 Certificate.
  3. Consistent Compliance: The facility must have two years of inspection data available.
  4. Application Submission: The facility must submit an application to the Hamilton County Public Health office, including documentation proving compliance with the food education criteria.
