Clay County Public Health Center is proud to announce the recipients of the Food Safety Excellence and Pool Quality of Excellence Awards for outstanding efforts in 2021.

“We are grateful for the hard work these establishments put in last year to not only meet but exceed the health department’s high standards of safety,” said Robert Gilliland, section chief of Environmental Health Protection. “We appreciate their partnership with us to protect the public from foodborne illnesses, waterborne illnesses and other hazards.”

This year’s winners represent the top 11% of establishments overseen by Clay County Public Health Center.
