Newton County Health Department issues flood food safety tips



BE SLIGHTY DIFFERENT THAN ORIGINALLY PLANNED DUE TO THE CHANGE IN LOCATION, BUT ALL OF THAT IS YET TO BE DETERMINED. HOLCOMB SAYS THE ONLY THING STILL SCHEDULED FOR THE PARK IS THE FIREWORKS WHICH WILL START AT SUNDOWN. CITY STAFF ARE TRYING TO COME UP WITH A PARKING PLAN FOR THOSE WANTING TO WATCH THE FIREWORKS AND WILL ANNOUNCE THEM LATER THIS WEEK. AFTER THIS WEEKEND'S FLOODING, THE NEWTON COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT IS SHARING TIPS ON FOOD SAFETY AFTER A FLOOD. THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT SAYS THROW AWAY ALL FOOD THAT MAY HAVE COME IN CONTACT WITH FLOOD WATER. AND DISCARD ANY FOOD HANDLING MATERIALS THAT MAY HAVE COME IN CONTACT AS WELL, INCLUDING WOODEN CUTTING BOARDS, AND PLASTIC UTENSILS AND DISHES. THEY ADD TO WASH ALL METAL PANS, DISHES AND UTENSILS WITH HOT WATER AND ONE TEASPOON OF BLEACH PER GALLON OF WATER. AND TO ONLY USE BOTTLED WATER THAT HAS NOT BEEN IN FLOOD WATERS. IF BOTTLED WATER ISN'T AVAILABLE, TAP WATER CAN BE BOILED INSTEAD. COMING UP,EVEN THOUGH WE'RE ONLY HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR,
