Coronavirus (COVID-19): Resources For Restaurants

COVID-19 ,

Our mission at the GRA is to serve as the voice of Georgia's restaurant industry in advocacy, education and awareness. Restaurants are the heartbeat of their communities and right now, our industry is facing challenges far greater than we could have ever imagined.

The GRA is here not only to represent restaurants with elected officials and shape public policy in our industry's best interest, but we are also here as a resource to help you get through this difficult time and hopefully thrive again in the future. We must move forward in thoughtful ways that can create a positive impact for our industry and in our local communities.

The health and well-being of Georgia's restaurant owners, workers and customers is always a top priority of our organization. Restaurants are highly regulated, and we are already utilizing proven methods to prevent the spread of disease. There is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 can be transferred to humans through food. Continue to follow sanitation procedures outlined in the Georgia Food Code. For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 (in multiple languages), please visit the Georgia Department of Public Health or CDC websites. Here is a link to a CDC flyer in seventeen languages about controlling the spread of infection.

If you are feeling symptoms, please contact Georgia's COVID-19 hotline, 844-442-2681 or the screening number for your local hospital. If you or an employee tests positive for COVID-19, contact the Georgia Department of Public Health at 1-866-PUB-HLTH (1-866-782-4584).

Please, reach out to us for any additional information or assistance. We are here to help.
