Only time I have seen the health department is at events with People's Choice or team vending. When we vend in Vermont we have to provide a "floor" under the prep areas, which in our case means foam matts. I don't see how it's a food safety issue. If something hits the ground or hits the matt, it's not getting served.
One of the reasons why I was not going to do pc is this was required, why buy a mat just to do pc. I was told by HD that it was for dust control.
