Restaurant Inspections, April & May 2016

Grays Harbor County’s Environmental Health Division lists restaurants and other food-handling establishments that received red and/or blue points, as well as those that didn’t receive any points. Red points are for food-handling practices that, when not done properly, are most likely to lead to food-borne illness. Blue points are primarily for maintenance and sanitation issues that are not likely to result in food-borne illness. A facility found with 20 or more red points is subject to a follow-up inspection. Blue violations should be corrected immediately when possible, but generally do not impose an immediate risk to the public.

More than 330 graduates were granted degrees from the college this year, and approximately 175 participatied in the traditional outdoor ceremony.
