IMPORTANT: CHANGES TO FOOD LICENSING AND INSPECTIONS
Because the regulations to implement the FDA Food Code are still in the regulation review process, it is not possible that they will be approved by January 1, 2019. Therefore, on January 1, 2019, the current food regulations: 19-13-B42; 19-13-B40; 19-13-B48; and 19-13-B49 will still be in effect and enforceable by local certified food inspectors. The FDA Food Code will not automatically become effective on January 1, 2019. It is not possible to predict the date the draft regulations to implement the FDA Food Code will become approved due to the various steps and required approvals that are part of the regulatory review process.

Having a Tick Tested for Lyme Disease: The Health Department accepts ticks at our office, which we send for testing to the State of Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. They will test the tick to see if it carries the spirochetes that cause Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, and Babesiosis. Please note: The CT Agricultural Experiment Station only tests engorged deer ticks.
Ticks should be brought in alive (if possible) in a zip lock bag or sealed containers (not in Vaseline, oil or other substances) to the Health Department Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. There is a $3.00 fee.
