Due to health concerns associated with pets, food facilities that wish to accommodate customers with dogs in outside areas/patios must submit an Operational Plan and Waiver for approval from Northern Nevada Public Health to allow for modifications to the Regulations of the Washoe County District Board of Health Governing Food Establishments.

*The submittal of an Operational Plan requires a plan review fee which can be found on our Fees page under "Operational Plan - Initial Review"

If you need to submit an Operational Plan, the plan must include all items from the checklist and the Operational Plan Review Application.
