Question 1: There has been several complaints in your community about dirty restaurants. Several restaurants are no longer in business as a result of a television expose.

The members of the task force are at odds over which approach to food safety best serves the interests of the community. Please provide a response to the following questions:

b. Describe worker behaviors that may promote or compromise food safety.

Please be sure to justify your opinion with the literature.

Question 2: Recently there has been numerous reports on increased mosquito bites in several neighborhoods in your community. Your staff has investigated these reports and have found them to be justified. In fact, there has been an increasing number of complaints that mosquitoes are preventing people from staying out in the early mornings and evenings. Additionally, the local health department has informed you that there has been an increase in reported cases of encephalitis and a few deaths related to West Nile Virus.
