The State Health Department has determined that certain diseases, including hepatitis A, salmonella, shigella, staphylococcus, streptococcus, giardia, and compylobacter may prevent you from serving and/or handling food or food equipment in a sanitary fashion.

I attest that there is no reason preventing me from performing these important functions of working in the food service areas.
