    Yes, Salmonella bacteria can enter a dormant or “inactive” state under certain conditions. When Salmonella is exposed to unfavorable environmental conditions such as low temperatures or lack of nutrients, it can enter a dormant state, where it remains viable but does not actively grow or cause infection. However, when conditions become favorable again, such as when the bacteria are ingested by a host, they can become active and cause illness. This ability to enter a dormant state helps Salmonella survive in various environments for extended periods.
