The Pima County Board of Health wanted you to have some hand sanitizer before you have a hot dog, but the Board of Supervisors denied a proposal to require food trucks to provide the gel.
The proposed ordinance also would have required food festivals to provide a handwashing station for every five portable toilets.
During their meeting this morning, the supervisors voted unanimously to reject the proposed ordinance.
Some food truck owners and festival organizers said the county doesn't need to legislate handwashing.
"Hand sanitizer isn't communism, it's common sense," health board member Brad Brumm said after the meeting.
Supervisor Ann Day said common sense will lead people to carry hand sanitizer in a purse or pocket if they want to wash up.
