The second section of the checklist focuses on food safety, which includes considerations when restarting operations after a shutdown, and reassessing operations to make changes due to COVID-19 such as changes to personnel, suppliers, and incoming ingredients, on food safety or Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan, as well as current good manufacturing practices (CGMPs).
