This is the very first time the agency certifies eateries for regulation compliance.
Commissioner Erwin Areizaga said the program seeks to include people in the self-regulation processes, as well as in training programs.
The certification program will remain open for restaurants and similar businesses.
Sec. Medina acknowledged restaurants for complying with regulations during the pandemic in order to remain open.
The Mexicali restaurant complied with 44 items including sanitary protocols, proper handling of food and drinks, among others.
