(2) No infectious person may engage in any occupation or activity involving the preparation, serving, or handling of food, including milk, to be consumed by others than their immediate family, until a local health officer determines them to be free of the infectious agent or unlikely to transmit the infectious agent due to the nature of their particular work.
