Ensuring safe food remains an important public health priority for our nation. An estimated 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths are attributable to foodborne illness in the United States each year. For some consumers, foodborne illness results only in mild, temporary discomfort or lost time from work or other daily activity. For others, especially pre-school age children, older adults, and those with impaired immune systems, foodborne illness may have serious or long-term consequences, and most seriously, may be life threatening. The risk of foodborne illness is of increasing concern due to changes in the global market, aging of our population, increasing numbers of immunocompromised and immunosuppressed individuals, changes in consumer eating habits, and changes in food production practices.

Residential housing or lodging facilities having five or less units are not considered pools or spas, according to regulations. An annual operating permit is required for each swimming pool and spa. The operating permit will be issued only after a satisfactory inspection of the pool and/or spa and receipt of all fees.
