The survey is a secure and is HIPAA compliant, and no personal or medical information will be released.

The survey includes questions about symptoms, illness onset, doctor’s visits, and foods that were eaten at the restaurant. Even if you ate there and didn’t get sick, you should complete the survey to help investigators eliminate potential suspected foods.
